I recently found a few pieces of nursery stock and I’d like advice from anyone with familiarity before I make any poor decisions. Any experience, positive or negative, is welcome and appreciated. These are the species:
- Pinus thunbergii ‘Kotobuki’
- Pinus nigra ‘Oregon Green’
- Pinus banksia
- Juniperus squamata expansa parsonii ‘Parson’s Juniper’
- Tsuga canadensis ‘Cole’s Prostrate’
A few notes:
- Some of the Kotobuki Pines are 12 feet tall with 6-8" trunks; I’m wondering if I have some decent low branching how they would respond to a trunk chop, assuming it is done at the appropriate time and the tree is healthy.
- A few of the ‘Oregon Green’ have thick trunks, decent movement and good nebari; they appear to have longer needles than the Kotobuki.
- The Parson’s Junipers have some really nice movement and look very healthy.
As I’m new to the forum, I can only post one photo. This is one of the 5’ Kotobuki Pines. I couldn’t get a good photo of the taller trees in the back.
If it’s helpful, I live in Knoxville, Tennessee. Summers are quite hot and humid, winters are mild for the most part. Thanks in advance.
