Studio Stories – Big John back in the studio!

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 – Big John back in the studio!

18th May and Big John is brought in to the studio. Despite some fungus problems he has still managed to grow well and put on a dense canopy.

It is now time to thin the foliage out, remove some leaves and let some light in to the canopy. You can see the difference in the before and after pictures and what was left on the floor when the tree was moved back outside.

The last picture was taken yesterday, three weeks later and you can clearly see the new second flush of growth emerging. Stronger shoots around the top of the tree were pruned back.
