Every year our trees will need to be worked on. This hinoki cypress came from rooted cutting. It is about 30 years old.
Last year it was in BIB show in January. it also was shown agin in November at GSBF convention in San Jose.
it is very dense. that is the way this dwarf hinoki grows. if we keep it this dense, interior buds will get weak from lack of light and air circulation. it need to be thinned. we takes a couple hour thinning it using sharp fine tips scissors
this is the look after we finished
Beautiful job and tree. I got a chance to see this one up close at the convention this year, and it has great branch structure.
