Walter,
Beautiful tree! Do you treat the deadwood on this tree with preservative/hardener? Seems like the image you have created would be spoiled if the taper were lost to rot.
Thanks,
Matt

Matt, >I do apply wood hardener twice a season. I do not paint it white, but rather grayish-blackish. One day it will rot away though, but that will be in twentyfive years.
