Studio Stories – Yamadorii Juniper…..end of summer work.

Sometimes I work on nursery trees, sometimes I work on client’s trees……and sometimes if I’ve been a really good boy I get to work on my own trees. Hopefully these regular visits will give you an insight into what goes on behind closed doors……….

Studio Stories – Yamadorri Juniper…..end of summer work.

This collected Juniper from Japan affectionately catalogued as “Cobra” continues to grow well and has excellent colour/vigour.

The tree is now too bushy….more light and air needs to be introduced into the canopy. The top has become a bit flat partly due to the trees growth and partly due to fat local wood pigeons who insist on perching right in the middle!

The foliage silhouette is also getting too big for a tree of this character and some branches will have to be removed. This will also open up a better view of the live vein/shari.

Weaker shoots were removed from inside and strong shoots on the outside were pruned back. Hopefully the pictures will tell their own story.
