Thanks Leo and Todd.

...this method stops all the decaying process inside the tree, which I cannot reach with preservatives and chisel. It is not new technique but I just took it to the next level. hehe

It takes real guts and knowledge to achieve this. I would kill for a tree like this. What exactly is your address, so I can come see this tree.....?   Laughing Laughing Laughing


knowledge?? Nope! Guts? yes...hehe. It's in my garden, When you get to the airport, take a Jeepney, then a tricycle (toktok) and just ask around for my address.  Laughing

but the soul

very impressive work, great tree but i am not in favour of burning tree for the sake of creation of bonsai. The trees soul was hurt. My comments are very personal and i do not underestimate the excellent work done in creating the tree.

Hi Rudiment,

I respect your view but I look at it in a different way. Imagine you have some tissue inside you causing decay to other parts and the doctor cannot reach with a scalpel to remove the trouble, he puts a little probe to burn that harmful part, will you say he is burning your soul or helping you not to decay any further? Jun said he could not reach deep inside and the only way was to use the "probing fire", maybe one day we will have laser and a small piece of wire to do this. I am sure the tree feels much much better now and is thankful to the owner for curing the cancer that was making it ill from within Very Happy . Fire is good too for cures!

Cheers,
Adam

Hi Rudiment,

The tree seems to thrive after burning, so I guess in a way it wasn't hurt that much... also, forest fires do happen in nature and we always see trees being able to bounce back and show resilience despite the fire... It's a great work with a great story... I like it very much.

Lastly, with Jun's expertise, I'm sure he knows when he's hurting the tree or not. For sure he did it with utmost control and would not risk killing a wonderful material such as this. BTW, is it still alive Jun? Hehehe...

Regards,

Derick

Derick and Adams,

Thanks!
Yes the tree is ok, and I am letting it grow wild again to get more branch girth. I'll show it maybe at summer after the workshop. 

Adam, You are right. now the carbon inside the trunk that was formed as a result of the burning process stops the rotting process and protects and save the remaining dead wood in the outer layer. Imagine without this barrier of coal inside, The moist from the ground and the watering will continue to sip from under the soil and in from the inside of the tree hole, this will eat up everything upward. there is no way that it can be waterproofed from inside the tree.

OHHHH here it is! Thank you very much Andre, my apology.
The small variety of granatum is really good for hedges, but this variety is seriously lot better, I also have the small variety. the downside in it is that the fruits are too big in proportion to the trunks and branches, but this big variety is the opposite- small leaf, small clustered fruits, large and fast growing trunks what more could a grower asked for.
