Juniper progression

Post  shannon on Fri Aug 05, 2011 10:06 pm

Hi,

Attached are some picture's of a Juniperus Squamata that I purchased two years ago I have recently done some work on the tree and potted it into a training pot for the mean time.

Sorry about the poor quality second shot.

Please let me know your thoughts and ideas good or bad.

Thanks
Shannon

I like the direction you are going with this. I have been looking at wild junipers all week in Arizona and yours looks very natural. Often times the pads I see on junipers look too much like topiary or they are grown in the manner you might expect to find a pine. I did not see one juniper that resembled a pine this week...

Great material Shannon.
If I may, I would like to suggest the possibility of a more rotated planting angle to get away from the vertical line of the trunk and the horizontal movement above.
Just a thought:

Nice piece of material and good progress with the transformation.

I'd agree with Justin on the angle of it though, and interstingly I spent most of yesterday working on a juniper of my own which has a similar shape to yours and I decided the angle had to be changed in pretty much exactly the same way as Justin has shown. I'll not hijack your thread with a pic of it.
