Had the itch to go look for trees, so I hit up a local nurseries. In the clearance section I found this 8’-9’ tall Carolina Sapphire juniper. It looked good, but I wanted to look around more. I just kept coming back to this tree though. The straight trunk and color of foliage just suited my eye I guess.
My plan is to to chop this about 60% up the tree around where it starts to bend to the left. I’ll be doing the chop this weekend. Then I’ll pump it with ferts and let it recover until a repot in the spring. Probably doing it wrong, but I’m not gonna learn anything by just staring at it. Thoughts?
Oh, it was 75% off of the $100 price tag, so $25.
