mugo #42

I have cleaned the tree, worked on the deadwood with a die grinder, set fire to the deadwood, brushed it off with a steel brush, cut off the large branch on the right top, wired all thicker branches, tilted the tree, put the branches into position. This is a very rough sketch. But it is enough for the moment. This could have been done fifteen years ago. Anyway, now I will feed the tree a lot, water it a lot, set it into full sun. In two years all the wire will come off, the old needles will be plucked, everything, including all smaller branches will be wired and it will shine. Or so I hope.
