Hi Hugh . I've not been sure about keeping the deadwood , to my eye it's a bit to heavy and it dominates a bit .for me the trunk is more interesting ,Watto is correct when he implies my photography is not up to standard
.The base is quite powerful on its own . I've brought the trunk line back over the base and the dead wood leans out a bit which to me is a bit confusing to the eye . I'm hoping to lessen this by growing the foliage around it . It may need some carving to make it more natural looking kind of more like an old trunk rather than what it does now . I'm not in a rush to cut it off because it's hard to glue it back on .

So where are they all?
They are coming . I've seen some great looking trees from people around Canberra . Most are in the development stage . We have seen the pioneers like Peter so we know it can be done and now comes the next wave .
