update on collected ash tree

This ash tree was collected last Oct 30,2011.All the leaves were cut off when we
removed the two major branches & it's been dormant since then.

It has a magnificent trunk that has been
broken in half by an other tree that fell on it

we found it by the bank of an old creek bed.
most of the roots were hanging in the air
above the creek & we figured it wouldn't
survive much longer.

So we dug it up

It had a large tap root & like I said
most of the roots were hanging in the
air so we wound up bare rooting it.

We did some root cutting to fit the container
then potted it in bonsai soil

Estimated to be about 30 to 35 yrs. old

Jacob & James helped dig up this
tree & we are still waiting for it to show
some sign of life. we'll keep you posted
keep your fingers crossed!!!!

That's all for now. Wax on ...................Wax off
