Fraxinus ornus "Cliffhanger" 10 years anniversary

This Ash tree was collected ten years ago from the edge of the quarry. I was fixed with rope to a bigger tree when collecting it. There were about 30 meters of nothing below the tree, hence the name. Quite an experience. I saved his life. We are brothers since then. Maybe he will save mine once.
Pot by Pravoslav Dorda. The tree was too dense so it was partially defoliated at the top of the crown and cut back.

  1. What a beauty. We've been working with offering a maintenance service for this for our customers, but I've always felt it was a specialized skill set. Perhaps I'll give it some more thought and try looking after a tree myself for a while to see how it goes.
