Ezo spruce, Picea jezoensis, collected in Japan probably before the war, stone by avicenna. Originally I said`if the spurce looks happy I will start wiring in August`. Now it looked as happy as a spruce can look - even after serious repotting in the middle of May. So I decided to style it immediately. It took a bit more thtn a day. The wire will stay on for three to five years on such a tree. In four years it might be ready to be exhibited. Anyway, I am quite pleased with the development of this tree in only two months.
