This tree was rescued from a friends garden approximately three to five weeks ago. All that was done to it before removal was a slight trim of the branches that were in the way of taking it out. It seems to not have suffered at all. There are two strong branches which got sawed off, but I will only keep one and perhaps carve the other. The style this sample leads itself to, is in an informal upright style.
I am entering this tree, not because it has great potential, but because it will test my creative abilities. Also, Bougies are relatively easy and forgiving to harsh treatment.
