So I am going to be starting the preliminary design on some Japanese Maples.
One of them has a lovely branch that I think could make a lovely tree.
My thought is this.
- Make the preliminary structural design BUT ignore the branch I wish to air layer in the spring.
- Make preliminary structural design to the portion of the tree ABOVE the intend to air layer.
- In the spring air layer the branch as usual.
In your more expert opinion is this a good approach?
