Always fun to read your blog Dan.  I'm wondering about your winter heeling, no wind protection?  I'd love to do the same to my rmj/pondys but I've been told by numerous people only to leave outside here if I can provide root and wind protection...gets windy as hell here, but I'm thinking, it must be the same in WY no?

Hi Chris,
Steve's yard is very well protected from wind. He has a fence and trees surrounding the yard, besides living in the middle of town where most of the wind is cut by other houses and trees anyway.

My yard is another story... I live on the edge of town in new development, and my house feels like it's going to blow to Nebraska from time to time. I have a large privacy fence that I back all of the trees up to, and I'll be using shade cloth as an additional wind break this year. Our trees have fared well in both locations though.

Good question!

Humm...wondering now if I could get away with something like that.  One reason I'm asking is I want to continue to have my yamadori and new deadwood exposed to the elements of winter.  Food for thought, Thanks Dan.

Hi Dan;  I liked your old website better as it showed your trees for sale.  Can it be that they were all killed last winter or you're sold out? I Do like all the links you post for new additions on your blog.  It's really hard to imagine the labor you do in finding and collecting these great trees.

Pot, you must have missed the announcements about our new website: http://www.backcountrybonsai.com/
The blog is now simply a blog, and we post trees for sale on the site. Our trees certainly did not die... :) We sold some, and there are a lot more coming soon.

Go to the "Yamadori" link, and go to any pages titled: Juniper, Limber Pine, Ponderosa, etc.

Thank you Dan.  Naturally I almost never pay attention to announcements so missed that.  Now I know where to go. ::)
Glad that the trees survived the BAD weather.
