I read you loud and....well clear... I guess but that is you doing what you are doing. I hope it gets done because there is hidden beauty in this tree and I am trying hard to help you help the tree. By the way, Taiwan is looking for a logo tree for their big show coming up. Maybe the 'Alien' or the 'Aliens' could make their debut.   __gary

Is alive, survived the move to CT and appears to be flourishing. Will be grafted in the spring (for two trees)after it starts to grow. John

Glad to hear John.  I think you have two really nice trees here, esp in the top section!  I love the crazy movement/twist in that top section. Will be nice to see these in down the road.

So Boon was out for a few days and we did some more grafting of Shimpaku on to the Alien- and others (10 total). So, we hope to end up with two trees, a twisty semi cascade from the top, roots and foliage (Itoigawa) grafted in place. After cleaning up the base roots and foliage were graftedd tp give one pf those contorted "you would never see this in the wild" shapes that are so much fun. We will see how it develops over the coming year.
