Podocarpus Progression Series

This massive tree was collected at the beginning of 2012. After resting for almost a year it was recovering nicely in a 65 gallon grow pot.

The tree was used as a demo tree at the Hukyu Bonsai Club in Spring of 2013. We discussed how to possibly carve it and what direction the tree should take. Everyone had great insights and agreed shortening the tree by carving or removing the main trunk was a good idea.

In 2014 the tree had been carved and the main branches had been wired into place. Many branches are left long to help with ramification.

Late Spring 2016 the tree is really coming along. I attempted a thread graft and it seems to be living after stripping it bare to thread it through the drilled hole.
