new front of ironwood

Post  Guest on Sat Nov 13, 2010 6:26 am

Hi IBC.

I want to change the front and angle of this tree to give more emphasis on the dominant trunk on the right side of the photo below. another one of the problem is the center slim trunk that disrupt the over all view.

previous front...




previous base...
the dominant trunk is much thicker but lesser in terms of character





the previous back, the dominant trunk got more character than the secondary trunk...





the new angle and front I want to get...again the center slim trunk is the problem, it moves directly towards the front from this angle..
the two trunks both got a nice movement and character from this angle


I decided to remove the center trunk and proceed with a much simplier twin trunk


view without the tilt... of the new front.



comments and suggestions

regards,
jun

Hi Jun,

If this was what you had in mind (please pardon my poor virtual skills)



Then I think it is a great improvement on the way the tree looks currently and also a wise solution to your three trunk problem

Hi Jun
I agree with your decision for opting to go for a twin trunk style. The third trunk was getting into the way and moreover it appears that it gave the composition a straight-line look. I like twin trunk styles and so will be looking for the unfolding of this tree's story. Good luck.

Ravi,

yes that is the plan. with the lower right side branches extended much further to the right side and much lower on the tip portion, almost touching the ground.
btw, the virtual you gave is "A" ok, no need to be fancy. what important is that you know what you wanted to achieve if it were your tree in the making.

thanks.

Hello Jun. Good idea taking the centre branch out. My concern is the future angle, as you will exposing the roots on the left side, down to the bottom of the pot?

Will,
thanks.

that was my concern before too.
that's why my answer to Ravi was to extend the lower right side branch further in the future, I am planning to put the tree in a wider pot then create a mound on the left side sloping down the right side.

Something similar to this idea below...

jun

Good solution Jun. I know its only a sketch but I think the heavier trunk needs to have more dominance over the right and seemingly forcing the right trunk and branches to search for light.

Thanks Will.
I'll keep that in mind during the design process.

Great Transformation Jun. I get the plan much better now thanks to your drawing. It is indeed much much better that what I had imagined.
