Got a bit of time instead of styling tree no 5 got to do no 6 first. I think I have got the numbering system some how confused. :( :(
Here are the pictures of this juni. ????? which would you prefer with or without the jins. All comments/suggestion/opinions are most welcome.
Thank you.
Yours sincerely.
Leong.

I was lucky enough to sneak a hour in after work today. This is a classic case of the picture not doing the justice for the tree.

This is a nice tree Leong and I agree with losing the Jins. I would like to see a virt where the bottom branch starts to cascade down at more of a angle? Just a thought....

Wouldn't mind having a couple of these to play with.

Hi Leong,

Great result from where you had to start from mate, in a couple of years time this will be a fantastic tree. I have to ask, are you going to keep the straight section of the trunk as is (the part that connects the canopy) or do you intend on tweaking that a bit to give it some subtle movement that will compliment the other half ?

Cheers

David

Sorry David what you see now is most likely be what it is. the straight sections of this juni is pretty much impossible to bend. You might be able to see a cable tie on the very top of the trunk where it bend, this is holding the crack togather. All the way down the straight section is a shari which was not unveil and is covered by the dead bark. Photos certainly do cover up lots of the real things, and is difficult most of the time to see what it is. I would dearly love to compact the two setions of the trunk and give the crown a bit more movement instead of the straightness but is not to be. The best out come would be what time can do as it develops. Would love to hear from the others and more ideas to improve from where it is.
Thank you .
Leong.

Very nice, Leong.

I like it. I'll look forward to seeing it upon my next visit :)

Assume nothing, question everything.

Hi leong, fab tree mate,

Just a little bit envious of you with this one. I think though that all I would change if it were mine would be take the apex towards the trunk by about half it's width, follow suit with the mid pad and have some small Jin underneath.

Either way, a beautiful tree and eager to see it progress.

Regards, jason

Tree-riffic!!!! :)

I think I like it without the jins, makes more simple and classic. I also like pot.

Great job Leong..

i think without Jins Leong, but im still not a fan of this one,
i cant get past that long straight section, theres no harmony between it & the main trunkline to my view

I couldn't agree with you more Adam. That straight section is a problem child. If you look close enough is also reversed tapered to a degree. The 2/3 of the top section is all natural shari, then the rest is live vein. As I said to David the top cracked when I try to bend it. Well when it settle and give it time, see if separating the life vein from the shari would do the trick or else it could be fire wood material. You win some you loose some. :) No pain no gain eh. Such is life. :(
Yours sincerely.
Leong.
