European spruce #57

Walter, Kolja and Martin brought this tree one step further. It was collected in Norway in 2009 and cam to my place in fall of 2010. This will eventually go onto a flat long stone slab. This is one single piece which makes it very rare. One disadvantage is that it is just a bit too high.

"This is one single piece"

What does that mean? That it's a raft? That it's a root-connected group? Anything else maybe?

It is one single genetic tree. I don't care what they call it . It is very rare in this quality. I call it clump.

I see. But if it is in fact "one single piece", wouldn't it be better to emphasize this by exposing the roots so that the connection is visible. Otherwise it will look just like any other group planting.

You are absolutely correct. That was one main point of the exercise. It does not show in the images but one certainly can see that it is a clump or multitrunk in reality. This will have to be emphasized even more in the future.
