Monthly meeting 28.07.08
Tonight we saw Joe work on an old Radiata pine. Unfortunately due to the age of the pine it was rather brittle and some of the branches were not able to reach there final positions. Hopefully during a subsequent wiring this will be corrected. As the transformation was rather quick he also talked about a technique for reducing needle length on Japanese black and red pines. This technique should be outlined in the next newsletter.
It was a good night with some beautiful display trees (Sorry, I forgot to take photos).
