That's pretty scary. I have to believe that the outcome (grand jury etc) would have been different had the individuals been digging up a stunted tree near the road, but as I said - I wouldn't want to be the test case.

I didn't collect trees from a land owners property, they where on the side of a state road right before a big drain canal. I don't think of myself as a thief, I would never just go on someones property and take there property. You guys are making me out like I went and clubed some seals, anyway this is what I did with the maple today. I incorporated the second trunk into a single design and left the largest root sucker to aid in development of the nebri or I might keep it. I'll have to see what it looks like when it flushes out

Location: jail


That's funny!

Anyway, on this tree I'd have chosen one of those leaders and not kept both. The smaller tree with the mirror image bend the other direction creates a weird "U". I think you should put some movement in the branches, they are too flat.

Regardless of where it came from I think you collected some wonderful trees. I'm especially envious of the hackberries. Does anyone have a really fine A. rubrum bonsai? I don't recall ever seeing one....

In that case you should get permission from the state Department of Transportation. It likely would not have been granted, if only because of their concerns for safety. All land is owned by some one or some thing. In this case, the property was the State's.

I have to sat that I was a bit pissed at your attitude. It was the
I may go back today with a fishing pole and a bucket and pretend I'm fishing I couldn't even get to the majority of them cause it got dark
(wink-wink - you all know I'm just gonna dig trees -- wink wink).

Thanks for discovering punctuation. MUCH more readable.

I agree. It is still called the same Wink.

Real life example, I used to turn wood and one time asked if I can pick up tree pieces TXDoT arborist contractors leave behind for later pick up and I was told I cannot because of safety concerns. I was also warned of a possible citation if I do. I was told by their central office that it is okay if I can convince a Trooper to escort me (flashing lights at the side of the road to warn motorists) while I load. At that point I gave up. That is TXDoT and not sure what other State laws are. YMMV.

If you wonder about the wood and think I am crazy for going through this length, it is from a several century old tree and have wonderful burled wood. A rare find and should not be wasted but I wasn't able to save any. Evil or Very Mad

I'd definitely remove one of the 2 branches at the minimum. Probably shorten the remaining as well by half.

I'm not going to judge you on where you got the trees, But the tree's do look like they have some good potential. I would use the right tree as a sacrifice and let it grow to thicken the base on the maple then just cut it off, and maybe add some movement to the branches too.

Anywho you have to watch out ton this fourm becuase there are some old badger's on this fourm that look for anything to nail you to the cross. Good luck with the tree's!

The situation is really quite simple: this forum simply cannot be seen to condone taking trees from the wild without the necessary permissions - even if the statement is wrapped up in a jocular manner. Sorry, but that's just the way it is. The old badgers are quite in the right here.


But perhaps we could now get back to giving reg-i some assistance with his tree on the basis that he has given sufficient assurances as to its provenance.

I started to work on my hackberrys today. I cut back the larger over grown branches and started to hollow the trunk, next i'm gonna start wiring it into a windswept.

Well I can finally see them I put a bunch on a rack off to the side and let them grow all year. There was so much foliage I hadn't seen a trunk in some time. Here's a couple more
