I thought I’d share a few spring pictures of my trees. I’m actually down to only 8 trees if you can believe it. I’m taking the quality over quantity approach. I still have some tropicals but they are still in winter storage.
First up, the Japanese maple arakawa that wakes up with a vengeance every year. It needs a haircut and a direction.
This Japanese maple forest always looks good in spring. It needs some work to be less top heavy still, hoping to get to it soon.
My RMJ also looks happy and healthy and I might work on it this year.
The itoigawa needs another haircut and styling this spring as well.
My silver berry flowered again. Even on its sacrifice first branch. Might look into air layering the top this spring.
My Japanese maple Bloodgood looks ok but not as vigorous as my other maples again.
The Korean hornbeam needs a trim and some wire. It’s coming along nicely and there will be another post soon.
This Chickasaw plum ended up flowering this year but I didn’t see it. I plan to give it a directional prime this spring.
And that’s it! I don’t plan on adding trees to the collection but focusing on the ones that I have. Stay tuned more posts to come!
