Breaking News: Tree saved from the brink of death by collectors!
I hope you all don’t mind a bit of humor this morning… lol. But I figured it’s as good a time as any for a nice heart warming collecting story.
This tree was nearly dead when Steve and I stumbled upon it. We almost didn’t collect it because it was so far gone, but decided that we would give it a shot. We had no doubt that it would die soon if left there. Most of the needles it had left were yellowing, and nearly all visible growth from past years was incredibly weak.
So, here is the tree in 2013, beginning to pull out of it’s downward spiral.
Here is the tree this spring (2015):
And here you can see the last two years of growth in the capable hands of Steve. All credit to this trees aftercare and health goes to him. 🙂 You can see the full health of last years growth in contrast with previous growth, and the lush beautiful beginnings of this springs growth.
Oh! And I should mention that this little success story is headed for the Artisans Cup this week! You may inspect it’s health in person there. 😉
Thanks for reading!
Wishing you happy bonsai and Blessings,
