Title: Transformed billy club
Post by: Grog on November 01, 2010, 05:23 PM
This is the other of the two large tridents I picked up this spring from Frank Kroeker.  They'd been dug from his nursery in Oklahoma then heeled into his new place in Kansas in sphagnum moss and mulch.  Boon was kind enough to help me pick this one out.  Future plans for it are to shorten, decide if the first heavy branch will go or be worked on as a sub-trunk, and probably root grafts. It's been my first fall with tridents, they give a surprisingly intense color show but they're just about done now.

Wow, that second pic is pretty hideous.  That is not the branch I was referring to possibly working in and will be removed.
