Privit 093

2019, This small privit came up on the neighbors property. He told me he was going to dig it out and throw it away. I told him I wanted it. He told me that now it was worth $50.00. I told him to throw it away. He went in to take a nap. Guess who got the tree?

At this point I have no idea if it is even alive. I never saw it sticking up in the yard. It was already pruned back to stump. Inspection with 10 power mag showed one small green pin prick sized bud that never opened all late Summer. It’s still there and I sealed everything that was cut, so I hope it’s just sulking till Spring. We will see.

My first inclination was to make a clump style tree out of it.

When I pulled the soil off the trunk and roots I seen the neck of the bottom of the trunk. Burying all that and the roots was going to need a 4 inch deep container.

I decided to make a single trunk tree out of it and pulling much more of the trunk up out of the soil to make a fatter tree and need a less deep pot.

More to come this next year!
