A lost case

Post  Greg on Fri Aug 26, 2011 7:03 pm

A tree that I bought last year from a nursery.

This is one was one of these trees remain unsold in the nursery for many years . Throughout the years the upper part dried out and lost but fortunately new growth could be seen near at the base.

I got it as a bargain since it was being considered by the nursery owner as a lost case with no many chances to be sold.

I first repot it to a training pot and reduce the height at 45cm crossing my fingers for more new growth at the remaining bark.

After a growing season it was more than clear that the most of the bark was died. The life part of the tree was just the area near nebari and in no case was not more 10cm in height.

With this situation, a few days ago I got the decision to do some curving to the dead part and try to attach the live part to it - a similar to what we do with a tanuki.

the following photos show the up todate progress.

Anybody to advise on the tree species?

Any other ideas / suggestions?

It's look like Pistacia Terebinthus and have typical odour. To decide, smell the leafs.

The green branch must be new trunk. Need to be thicker, soo put it to big pot, and feed it good.

Its maybe some kind of pistacia, not sure if is terebinthus, I will smell the leafs, thanks!

the green branch will eventually attached to the dead part and will be secured in place using a few screws, so Iam not sure iif there is a need for a big pot scratch
