Some of you have asked to see the results of graft made this spring. Here are some pictures to share:

This is a graft of red pine in the Ponderosa. Red pine foliage is bright green in the center. There are only two grafts, and have weakened the Ponderosa fires a little. Maybe by the end of next I’ll be able to take off all the Ponderosa, and then we will have a red pine year.

The second graft on the same tree. Although the foliage is as long as the Ponderosa at this time it will be reduced considerably in a small pot with less fertilizer. And then there is always the possibility of using the standard technique of cut pine Black candles, and then we as short as we like needles.

Rocky Mountain juniper grafted with Chinese juniper. The grafted foliage is tight mass in the center, and the Rocky Mountain is the fallen foliage at the bottom. This was a graft slit with two rods. Graft approach is also very common and actually easier for juniper.
