This is another one that I have had for some time and done very little with. It sure needs attention. I gave it a weed, trim and feed - lets see what happens over the next few weeks.

I like the shape of the trunk on this one.

How could you neglect such a tree.... you must have so much great stuff to overlook this. The possibilities are wonderful and once you start compacting the foliage and sorting out branches it will be an excellent tree. It's going to be great fun to work with!!
