collecting a big spruce

This is a tricky one. I assume that most folks would not have bothered to collect this one. It looks kind of very ugly, and sick too. And it is way too high, 120 cm at the moment.
Well, if it survives this will be excellent demonstration material. I believe that I can make a really good looking elegant tree from this in a cople of hours. But first it has to show clear signs of strenght. At the moment it looks just sick. I believe on the mountains this tree was in the middle of a poerful hail storm that made it look so shabby. I look forward to show the progress on this one. You are in very good company if you cannot see any good bossai in it at the moment.

Dear Walter,

I am very curious what happened to this yamadori. Is there any progression you can show already?

Regards

It did not make it. Unfortunately this happens very often.
