Congratulations to all the place getters and to all who attracted votes.

I have been MIA for 2 months after I ripped our house to pieces.

Hope to be back in action in a month or two, in the meanwhile my trees are enjoying being left alone and watered.... looking a little rough however.

@Ryceman3 the thuja is filling out nicely thanks!

There's a big gap top right that I need to fill still, and I'm looking to bring the first branch further round and down as it lengthens.
How's that lepto of yours with the wild trunkline?

Wow, these are some beautiful tree's, as a beginner i am impressed with what you've managed to achieve in only 18 months, very inspirational. My favourite would have to be ken's juniper (i'm a sucker for juniper's!)

I'll update the thread for it when I get a chance to take a photo, I gave it a bit of a break this summer, just let it grow although I did chop back a bit towards the end, I think it is budding back again nicely getting ready for Spring. Your tree is coming along nicely, great photo!
