My large one is from Louisiana I know for sure, the other was also from the south, but not sure exactly where.  It must have to do with climate, or some local bug that we don't have here.  It's too bad, as they have a nice strong clear yellow in good years up here.  Nice contrast to maples when they are going at the same time.

Now lets see more naked trees!  I'll get out to do more of mine soon....
here is a newly styled and wired Japanese maple before and after, not that it's really worthy of a silhouette photo yet, but it will be someday!

Haven't been home enough to take many photos lately; hopefully this weekend.  Here are a couple I managed to snap, J. Maple and zelkova.

And I'm eager to see how they did this year.  I'm concerned that the 2 that would have most improved the front didn't make it.  Hopefully drilling the holes encouraged something, or I'll be trying again in the spring.

Very nice job of making the best of a bad base. It is so important for people to see this and the effort you have taken. If at first you don't succeed, graft, graft, again! Thanks fir sharing.

John & Brian - It is techniques like this that make me so grateful to be studying with Hagedorn. I am not sure how I would have learned these types of things without a teacher. Every penny has been well worth what I am spending to study with him. I am sure others agree wether they are studying  with Boon, Brian, Jim, Walter, Owen, and the many others who have taken the time and expense to learn the skill and pass it on. JRob

A few more winter eye candy pics...
Here is my big Hackberry, it's looking shaggy, as I don't cut fine branching after mid-late summer. Less dieback, but winter shots are not as pretty as they could be.  If I were to ever show in winter, I'd clean it up.

And an immature beech, it's so young that it doesn't even loose it's leaves yet in the winter.
