Yamadori Mt Hemlock
« on: October 26, 2013, 04:56 PM »
 Hello All,

Thought that I would share a pic of a Mt. Hemlock that I worked on this fall.
I collected this tree two years ago in the Cascade Mountains here in WA State.

Thank You Rob,

I am very pleased w/ how the work on this tree went. Mt Hemlock is one of my favorites as Bonsai, limited range where they can be kept but a joy to work with.
A couple of more pics.
The second shows a couple of others I collected, a Mt. Hemlock I styled this fall and an Sub Alpine Fir Collected a few years ago that has yet to be worked on.

Thanks again, Jason

Zone envy, I wish these were reliable outside of the Pacific Northwest (the wet and cool part). Nice work!

Thanks All, Looking forward to getting them into suitable pots, which will take a few seasons. And refinement.
Will do Judy ;) that fir is one of those trees that looks like bonsai before any work, has some nice trunk movement (like most trees in photos) that you cant see in a pic.
John, Do you know if Yellow cedars are being kept outside the PNW? Great species I haven't hears being used elsewhere.
another pic of the sub alpine fir and a Yellow Cedar I collected.

Very cool, thanks for the new pics.  I'm a sucker for firs.  I have many white firs in my landscape.... Always wondered how they'd be for bonsai.
And that cedar!!! :o

Tou know, I have only seen them worked on as Bonsai (outside of Portland and Seattle) once. Dan Robinson had some in Denver for ABS last year and did a demo on one. I imagine they will do fine in any climate with a moderate summer, and a protected winter. Interestingly I watched a number of the weeping version do quite well for many years in a NW Arkansas landscape, in the ground. I would think that if you can manage Hinoki or estern White Cedar you could do these. Great specimenyou have.

Hemlock is one of my favorites as Bonsai

Today I picked up a hemlock that has been growing for a couple years at one of our local garden nurseries. Do you think you or anyone with experience growing them could post some information on general care for hemlock?

Thanks,
Shim

A friend had a Chamaecyparis nootkatensis (Yellow Cedar) in Murfreesboro, TN for a few years.  It did great.  Challenging to keep tidy, but liked it here.
