I’ve written about this thuja a couple of times. I’ve originally envisioned this tree going on a standard bonsai pot but it will have to be a very large pot. This tree is between 4 to 5 ft tall. I got inspired by Michael Hagedorn’s Mt Hemlock forest on slab. Michael used a Teflon slab but I used 1/2 inch thick steel slab with torched edges. I had a welder make the slab for me using my design.
Although this tree could use more carving and more ramification, I’ve decided to incorporate this tree on a small display garden at the 2017 NW Flower and Garden Show.
