Adair M:
Thanks for the kind words, John.

I'd like for this tree to grow out like yours did to regain strength.

And I like how Akio has some Jin extending beyond the canopy of your tree. That's the effect I was trying to describe with my "lightning bolt" comment.

bwaynef:
Kirby, you ought to start a thread on HOW you get your trees so healthy and strong. 

John Kirby:
Wayne, there is no secret. You have heard it from Boon, me, Adair, John C, Owen, etc, etc, etc. Good  roots in rapidly draining soil, generous water, generous fertilizer, control fungis and pests. This tree was cut back pretty hard last year for cuttings as well.

No secrets.

John

So there's hope for me stuck in the shade?

Now you're just showing off.

John Kirby:
No, not showing off, just showing how well they can grow, even in a suboptimal location like New England. But you need sun!
