I was just looking at this " giant redwood " again and it seems to me you could accomplish a very similar effect with a hollywood juniper.

Very nice work and a good job of keeping it healthy, but I find it quite boring to look at, sorry.
I used to agree with that kind of statement until I saw a sugi looking like this one in a top class japanese nursery. When close to them, they really evoke old cedars seen in japanese forests like in the oku-no-in cemetery on mount Koya like those you can see by following this link http://minilien.com/?mAjjGRzQEu.

Really impressive.

I have a closeup pic there :

That's a gorgeous tree Boon, thank you for sharing. 

It's all the more impressive after hearing how much work is put into the tree.

Looking good Harry, I knew you would enjoy it. An exposed root pine with very nice bark. As I said when you got it, if the upper branches weren't as large as they are I wouldn't have let it go.
