Scot got rot.

Series of pictures showing how even bad trunk reductions can be enhanced. This Pine had a large branch removed some years ago and someone attempted to carve it. Not only was the carving unconvincing but the cut left very little wood to do anything with.

I asked the trees owner to hollow out the middle of the cut and to try and leave a wall 3-4 mm thick. I then went in and used a very fine cutte to jig saw a section of the wall away.

The wood was burned slightly to remove small splinters and sharp edges

Picture taken from slightly above. Although the branch was at the back of the tree, this work was still worth carrying out. Even if it will not be seen at shows.

Funny, I still can't get the tree photos, but Will's avatar scares me! Wink

Slow and gentle progression with this tree.Yan and Mario Komsta decided to shorten its appearance.

Wire placed in the groove and tight raffia over the top.

Some major work on the bend but the foliage was left alone. Too much to the tree at this stage and the tree wouldn't survive.

Wow!!! Dramatic bend!!! It is nice, but I preferred the original, gentle shape.

Hi Will
Beautiful work on dead wood. I like change. The tree will have more drama and more dynamics. ThumbsUp
