Our hinoki forest as it was found, grown together for more than 10 years with trunks of about the same size and almost equal spacing. That was our puzzle game. With only a small hinoki we could add … (because everything we had!)
Our solution: Without taking separate trees that would have a bunch of them, converting the group of about 15-20 degrees clockwise placement trunk did have spaced more attractive. And we add a little wee hinoki on the far left, tucked under the eaves of a large one. Some of the differences in the size of these logs can be mitigated over time, with the growth and formation of trees differently. And then, maybe we present a few young upstarts hinoki trees tucked here and there in another season. Any other year. When seedlings have more upstarts. I think the nylon slab we put in is a bit too large for these (cough) six trees, but the trees are weak and need a lot of work and will develop in size. And in a few years we can redo perhaps with a bit more trees added. They made cuts …
