This photo essay ends with a couple of movies … They are too short for popcorn, but long enough to sit down.
Last week this Hemlock Mountain (Tsuga mertensiana) was designed pruning and wiring. It is an unusual front, as all vertices flow 45 degrees to the back and to the right. For me it was a tree that frequents to find nature, as if he felt like the wind was literally in the back, and so was determined to maintain a sense of windy in style. Given the surrounding trees, it was not a tree naturally influenced by the wind, and the same movement of the vertices was a coincidence.
Loved the height of this Hemlock. Although it is more than twice the height of most bonsai, which has a high sense of arboriculture about her that seemed wrong to reduce. So we left very high and it will be more of a ‘tree garden “located on the ground, probably on a slab. 7’ 4” from the top of the box. I will not let anything get higher, so the vertices slowly around a bit and look older over time.
My apprentice Bobby Curttright, who is doing some very fine wires these days, joined with Matt reel whose wiring is always exquisite, made a team of three (me) and finished in hours instead of days .

Y! here as promised, there are a couple of videos of this style Hemlock, sporting goods Daft Punk in the background . from time to time just to dip French house music at the end of a day of wiring. Bobby and Matt wire tree in the first, second, gives a feeling 3-D for the group and branch:
