Didn't get to post this before the lockdown of Don's thread.

Interesting.  Is that a hollow down the center of the tree?

I guess I missed something but its disappointing that finally something worth talking about gets posted (Don's BC) and then the thread gets locked...its no wonder this forum just limps along:(

Neither the admins nor the moderators locked the thread.  Assumption is he locked it himself, but thanks for the vote of confidence.  ;)

Not sure but it looks like it.  The idea here was to show that the flat top does occur in nature.  We saw this when we were collecting BC in LA several years ago.

Thanks Frank.  Perhaps I'm wrong, but I don't think anyone was debating whether they occur in nature, just offering thoughts and suggestions.

Anyway, thanks for sharing.

I want to publicly apologize for jumping to conclusions about why this thread was locked...but you do have to admit that sometimes things can be a little tight around here.

No worries.

In the 5612 Posts in 671 Topics only a handful of topics have been locked by mods or admins, and always with explanation.  The internet bonsai forum is an interesting animal.  Some are run with little or no moderation.  This one is run by those that wish to keep the topic "Simply Bonsai" and without personal attack.  We hope that it is better for those reasons.

Now, back to bald cypress.
