Pine collecting in a Central Florida Sand Scrub

<< < (2/5) > >>

I have a few more places to go. Hopefully I can find better material. I still can't get to the bald cypress till the bog dries up a bit.I found a little sweetbay magnolia that has nice roots and movement. Yes the leaves are big but they reduce enough for me and I get them to back bud by snapping the trunk and only leaving a strip of cambium to the top of the tree. It works every time.


looks interesting. Please send the results are your efforts continue on. On our side we are testing the Caribbean/Honduran pine.

What is the red stuff - coconut fibre ?
Thanks for posting.
Good Day

Here are two Caribbean pines, from seed.
Builder's gravel [ silica based ] 5mm and compost.

I will see about getting you two new images.
Both were just thinned and tested for training using the Japanese techniques for Black pines.
The little one in the image is a J.B.pine and J.B.pines grow easily down here.
Good Day
