This demonstration was a tree at a convention a few years ago. My client has been keeping you healthy and has been looming around pretty well, and we decided he was ready for new wiring.

I was surprised how well developed here Ponderosa in the northwest. When I came here in 2006 I assumed that there would be enough sun to really get the sprouting and growing shorter needle in these pines, but after working on a few now in a few years that I have another opinion. This will need only three or so years of growth before it feels settled in this new style.
