Here are some pics of my trees. I know I have some work to do, but these are my babies. Any advice or comments are welcome. My special project is the Trident Maple. It should be leafing out pretty soon, and I am psyched up about the second season that I have it for. I have no plans to cut or train at all, just let the sucker grow for a while, and then I can move forward with my plans. I think that a broom style could be nice, or if I decide to trunk chop it in drastic fashion. Thoughts?
On the Ficus Retusa, there are two trees, and I have had them up against each other for the past year. I kept them that way when I repotted, but I am toying with the idea of trying to graft them together once the rapid growth season begins.
