Japanese Cedar, Cryptomeria Japanica
« on: May 15, 2012, 03:15 PM »
Want to know if this variety backbuds at all. The one that I have needs to be cut back but I'm worried about losing the tree or branches.

Yes it back buds easily and you can chop it as though it were a deciduous tree.

have any pictures of the tree you are trying to get to backbud? Can be very strong when healthy.
