Pruning & Planting Season

All in a day’s work

After 21 years since planting the sapling, this tree grew to be nearly two stories tall. Instead of one tall trunk with branches going horizontally and diagonally, there is one trunk that rises two meters from the ground up, and from there a dozen or so mini-trunks continue up vertically–those you can see in the foreground that are longer. I will now replant those tall stakes, plus another 100 or so smaller stakes cut from the top thinner sections of those branches. This is an unusual species of tree (more on that another time) so my hope is that planting all these cuttings will fortify the species. Birds love this tree, even though I have never seen fruit or any other edible that might attract them.
