Pacific Northwest (Canada) Yamadori

Post  gman on Mon Feb 06, 2012 10:56 pm

Hello, I thought some here might be interested in looking at some trees from the Pacific Northwest.
I was over at a friend’s garden discussing some of his trees and potential plans for the future. He has a large collection of Yamadori, many… many large ones and I helped him get a few of them ready for this weeks work (he’s lucky as he’s retired)…….while we were moving them he told me that he hardly takes any progress photos and doesn’t venture into the on-line forums/blogs. So, I wanted to start this thread and then update it overtime.
This first one is a yellow Cedar (Alaskan Yellow Cedar, Cypress) Callitropsis nootkatensis. It is very old, with great bark and deadwoods features.

Interesting trunks. A little bit of styling and they will look very nice.

always appreciative of your posts. Nice to see something other than white cedar.

I love shore pine almost as much as my chojubai. The last one photoed is fabulous! the first pictured, looks really strong. At first glance I almost thought ponderosa because of needle length. Would really appreciate following these trees as your friend begins to work on them. Smile

Thanks Rob/Dick,
Overtime I will see these and others transform into very nice trees and also hope to participate ……..if my friend will allow me to lol!
Shorepines do normally have longish needles but as with most pines they do shorten up nicely over many years in pots.

Love the pine with the descending branch on the left--and it is so small too.
