European spruce # 63

European spruce, Picea abies, collected in October 2008 in the Alps. After two years it seems to be sort of established. So we decided to bring it one step further. Walter did all the deadwood work. In summer of 2013 I will probably style the crown. The decision has to be made whether it will have two tops or one and which one will have to go. Well, I have two years to think about it.

Because it was growing in an area where it should not. This grass land is for cows and should not become a forest. The farmers cut down thousands of such trees every year. So this one lives and would have died otherwise. Where is the problem?
