Double Trunked San Jose Juniper in the works

Post  Greg Matthews on Mon Jan 19, 2009 4:19 pm

Hi Guys, I like the way the new board is looking.
This is a double trunked Juniper I recently styled. I believe that it is a San Jose (Juniperus chinensis), it was a landscape bush about 2 months ago.

I think you need to change the angle of plating a bit. As is, you have a head-on, straight up, "Y" shape, which seldom works. You might give the planting a quarter turn in either direction. or tilt it a bit so the small trunk maybe turns into a large, low branch or at least an almost horizontal trunk.

That said, you've done a nice job.

I see what you mean in the picture but I don't see it in real life. I don't know if turning left or right would work well, I took some more pictures at different angles to show more detail.

Going back and reading older posts I found this one.

Consider repotting this instead of turning try angling the trunks so that one is more upright. From the original photo, I would suggest tipping the trunks to the right with the left trunk being more"dominant".

Greg,

This tree has beautiful lines, and great potential. I really like the first photo, and the angles, but be sure to work on keeping the heights different. The young tops need to grow and get into better contrast with that great base. But that is the fun....watching that happen under our care ! I'm not sure this is San Jose though. It looks more like Sylvestris to me.

Good luck with it...

Hi Greg, - I think the left hand trunk in the original picture would make a better tree on its own. It certainly has great movement. Have you thought about removing the right hand trunk completely and carving the base to create a hollow? If your not sure about the hollow, then a simple jin might work just as well.
The amended image tells it own story

I'm absolutely sure it can be a fantastic tree in some years time!

Kind regards
