I’ve been staring at this little Thuja occidentalis for a while now and I’d like to hear any thoughts, criticism, or advice as it moves forward; the end of august basically amounts to mid-fall here so the period of work is well over, but I could certainly tweak branch placement a bit if it comes to that.
It started life as bargain bin nursery stock , ramrod straight, with a decent root base to the left so I exaggerated the few bends it did have into a shape that reminds me of a picture (that I have since lost) of a tree perched on a cliff-side, reaching up into open space; sort of an airy, ethereal feel to it. However, I was at a loss as to how to use the second trunk (if at all), and eventually settled on leaving it be for the time being to really feed those roots on the left, and I was a bit gun shy given the amount of foliage I had reduced by that point.
Please feel free to point out any holes in my logic or design, I just ran with my gut feelings on this one and it’s never a bad thing to check those on some facts once in a while.
