of the information Peter Warren is providing...
Next things to look over:
- trunk and the movement;
- special features, like jins, shari, bark quality, hollows, etc.
- branch placement;
- lastly, any flaws in the tree which must be fixed, featured or removed.
Here is one of the Larch workshop trees. It was grown in Maine and purchased for this workshop for about $80.
After some settling in when Ryan arrived, Mac chose this one to work, at my suggestion.
Mac will have some major work to complete the initial styling, but this tree will be a future star in his collection!
