Root over Rock Trident
« on: August 23, 2009, 05:20 PM »
Since my move in May I have had little time to spend with my trees.  But it is starting to slow down and so yesterday I decided to work on some.  This is a root over rock trident.  I would have liked to have left in it the ground a little longer because it isn't grasping the rock it a few places but the move made for some early digging.  I defoliated it a couple of weeks ago and would have liked to have wired it then but ran out of time.  I will cut the longer branches back next spring as they are a little long.  I cut the top back when I defoliated it so it needs some time to fill back in.  Will change the pot in time but had a Sara Raner pot sitting around so I put it in it.

Hi Frank,
Looks like you found some time. Nice tree, I have liked that one since you first showed it to me. Did you get 1 defoliation on the tree this year? I know you have been incredibly busy with the new job.  I have been able to defoliate one last time around labor day, but with the funky weather this year......

John my friend,
Just got one defoliation in this year and did it rather late.  I know weather, it has rained a bunch here this summer.   Glad I went with the 100% haydite.

Understand, you will have to re-remember what the difference in weather is relative to south of OKC.

Way to go Paco, but why are you hiding in the bushes. Post some pictures of the pine you got from Don.

keep it green,
Harry

Those aren't bushes, that is one of my pines.

Looks like all your trees like that cool wet weather, maybe next summer I'll send a few of mine up for a visit. The could use a year off from the 100 + July and August.

keep it green,
Harry

It was a good thing that the weather was wet and mild since I had little time to take care of them.  Here are two pictures of them basking.  This is the first year that I was able to leave my tridents in full sun. 
Hey send your trees up for a little vacation.
