Prunus Mahaleb

This Prunus Mahaleb was collected with help of Matej in spring of 2012. In early summer of 2014 the tree was defoliated and styled for the first time.   

Now it was time to make the next step so I stlyled and repoted the tree.

In addition I styled the deadwood in the upper part of the tree. Because there is a lot of natural deadwood on the tree I decided to style the rest of the deadwood without power tools and used only chisels. When there will be the first possible opportunity I will use a sandblaster to finish the styling of the deadwood.

I'm happy with the current development of the tree for now. In the next development stages I will focus on branch structure and ramification development.
