Newly Transplanted Yew

Post  John Buttino on Mon Jul 18, 2011 4:28 am



I dug this up about 7 years ago... it had a long, root that led to all the feeder roots. I've been gradually reducing it as new feeders show up. I am finally able to fit this in a small pot. Once it recovers

I think this will be a carving project

Any suggestions?

Can't wait to see your next progress on the carving. How do u know which section of the tree trunk to be started off when carving? If we select the wrong section to be carving it will kill the plant right? I also interested to start a carving project but lack of this knowledge. Worry will kill the plant after years of taking care.

The living parts become quite clear over time as they keep getting fatter and new bark forms.
The non-functioning parts kind of dry up, and stop developing. I will start with the dead, future jin branches and work my way out until I hit living tissue.
It's kind of a patience game, since I didn't style this tree immediately. It's my first yew project so I'm taking it slowly.
