Hallo all

2008 i found an old pinus mugo. It was not possible to dig the tree, but airlayering is a very good alternative. If the tree is strong, he does in a few month new roots.
I startet airlayering in spring 2008 and could separete him in september 2008.

I removed the sphagnummoss and plantet the tree in a trainingspot. I use as a substrate akadama and pumice.

2009 in summer. The tree is not strong but healthy. It is ok for the fist year in a pot.
My vision of an airlayerd Pinus mugo from 2008  032_0410

In spring 2010 i removed the rest of the sphagnummoss. 2008 it was not possible to remove the whole moss, because the new roots break very easily.
It is better for the tree to remove one or two years later the moss because it holds the water very good and this could be a problem for the tree.

The mugo was plantet in an smaller pot.

2011 in spring the tree had strong buds. This is a sign that he is ready for further Progression.
My vision of an airlayerd Pinus mugo from 2008  044_0210
The whole tree is healthy.
My vision of an airlayerd Pinus mugo from 2008  050_1410

In September he was strong enough for the first time to cut back and to start the progression.

I think this will be the Position for the tree.

In 2012 it was time to check the roots again.

The last two years the tree made a lot of new roots. They look very healthy.
My vision of an airlayerd Pinus mugo from 2008  0172_210

I removed all the soil to see if i can plant the tree in the right position.

My vision of an airlayerd Pinus mugo from 2008  0177_210

I wanted to remove the thick root, but it was not yet possible because there are still many fine roots. But next time i can remove the thick root.

Very nice. Thanks for sharing. What method did you use to air layer: a/ wire turniquet b/ bark collar removal ? other?
Thanks

Me, too! Contrary to every common belief, I think....
I do share your vision for the tree, Herbert.
Eric is a genius and his pot suits your very special pine the best.
I am looking forward to seeing the photograph in live.

Thank you for the nice comments.

@yamasuri
I remove a ring of bark and use sphagnummoss. Nothing else.
By airlayeering a mugo you have a quote near 100% that the tree makes enough roots. It is easy as airlayering a trident marple.
If the tree is strong and healthy and the mugo grows in a good earth, so the tree needs 4-6 month to make enough new roots.
If the tree grows in rock and crushed stone it takes 2 years.

Stunning! That many roots! Wow! Your plan for the tree is very artistic, almost brilliant. Looking forward to the progression of your Mugo pine.

Hi
a "Little" update about the mugo.

2013 the tree had a problem. Wood beetles demaged one branch so that he died.
My vision of an airlayerd Pinus mugo from 2008  0192_010

The last two years i just watered and fertilized the tree.

Now he is healthy again and i can go on to design the mugo.

The buds are good and healthy.
My vision of an airlayerd Pinus mugo from 2008  0227_010

So it was time to give her a new pot. I always saw this mugo on a stone slab.

It was a really hard work for about 10 hours. First a few hours for working on the deadwood. Than a few hours to prepare the Stone slab.
I demaged 2 drills because the slab ist very hard. After that 2 hours for repoting and Fixing the tree.

See the Pictures. The slab is 90 cm wide.
My vision of an airlayerd Pinus mugo from 2008  0234_010

Drill wholes was hard work.
My vision of an airlayerd Pinus mugo from 2008  0236_010

Than i had to edit the edge of the slab. I prayed that the slab does not break.

Then i had to go outside because the tree and the slab togehter i could not carry trough the door because it is too big.

It was terrible cold and snowing.

A few days later a friend helped me to carry the tree upstairs from my working room into the garden.

Now he is on his place again.

great!
looks like a roaring dragon, ready to strike.
how did you airlayer it? did you take a ring of bark off or did you use a wire around the trunc to stop the sap flaw?
have you ever tried air layering on scott pines?
