Crab Apple Layer
« on: August 23, 2010, 11:26 PM »
I started this layer the least weekend of April and it was cut over July 4th weekend. At first, all of the leaves wilted and died, but after about 2 weeks with no leaves, the cambium was still supple and some buds started pushing growth. Now I am certain the tree is going to continue living so long as it makes it through the winter. The trunk is about 1-1 1/4" Diameter and about 10-12 inches tall. I think maybe next spring I will chop it a bit lower and use one of the low branches as a new leader. Maybe change the planting angle so this tree is not so verticle.

Good to hear it's pushing out new growth.  Where are you located?

The tree is located in baltimore, md.

Not sure if this was clear, but the pictures are as the tree sits today, so the leaves there is the new growth!
