This is how a Cornus mas has to be...

Post  Max on Sat Mar 31, 2012 2:10 pm

big, fat and perfect Nebari...
Yesterday I dug it out. Alone!
Later on my good friend Christian helped me to bury it into my garden.
The most necessary equipment was an axe and a chain hoist.
In 10-15 years this will be a good one.

Best wishes
ME


A few months ago.

Yesterday.

A lot of big stones in the soil

chain hoist for up to 1500 kg one direction

opposite direction

it moves

This is how it has to look

compare!

So far I did it all alone.

My friend Christian and a big hole

Very nice! You did good! That tree have so much character and huge!!! thumbs up Careful, collecting is very addicting. Wink

If I may suggest for next time...the best tool I found is a (battery operated for remote areas) reciprocating saw. It will cut your collection time by as much as 80%. I just recently got mine but a friend had one during one of our digs and we collected big bushes in less than 10 minutes!!! My usual tools are; trenching/transplanting shovel, lopper, pruning saw, small pick, big pick for rocky areas, garden shovel, and hatchet. I haven't used my come-along (hoist) yet but I also have one.

Hey Dario,

my sawing blade was destroyed just a few days before I needed to dig this one out. So I was unable to use the "quick equip".

How did you carry out that very heavy looking tree by yourself Max?

Great material though btw!
