    Hi guys I did watch the Dave in Osaka Livestream too and was fascinated with the prices he was showing from the vendors. Some Pots at $50,000 USF, crazy for sure.

    Yes Geoff, I did. If need be I will make my own. In the end I think I found a great local potter who can construct an irregular slab for my mixed specie forest.  This is 22×12 Irregular slab

    Thanks Geoff, do you have any seed houses that one can order from. I did a search and only suspect Chinese items came up. Not for me directly but a young club member. Thanks

    Thanks Geoff, I thought I would give the process a go and I like the fact the shelves help to bring out the trees and that they are low maintenance.

    Beautiful Beech Geoff, I just purchased a Blue Beech and very excited to see the leaf colour. It will be part of a planned Mixed deciduous forest inspired by Saburo Kato’s mixed forest style creation on pg. 19 of his book

    Hi Geoff, nice to meet you on Zoom. I hear you on the size and weight of the big trees. That’s one BIG reason I joined up with Morton. sure having fun creating these little guys for sure. I used Mortens field maple group planting as a guide to make one of my own this week. I was a lot harder than I thought it would be, so we will see how time treats me.

    Hi Geoff: new inspiration. I have a large Silver Birch Forest, now I need a Mame size on its own. Planning to do some Birch Air layers this year so this will give me a reason to try it…well done.

    Thanks Morten for your kind words. Are you planning a book on this subject at all. It’s difficult to find any still in publication.

    Hi Nicolas: My name is Jonathan Aristone from London Canada. Can you tell me if your forest is mediterranean cypress trees? It is very nice indeed.  I was in Italy last year and brought home some Cypress tree cone, which I was able to get seed from and plant. I have two trees now growing and the leaves are very blue in color. The shape is what I was hoping for too.
