Logwood (Haematoxylum campechianum)
330 cm (129.9") high and 220 cm (86.6") wide
Haematoxylum campechianum (Logwood) is a species of flowering tree in the legume family, Fabaceae. The old wood from this tree is extremely hard, one of the hardest I seen, the wood is dark red (haematoxilin is extracted from this tree) and that’s why it was called the blood tree. This particular specimen I have given the name TITAN as it is the heaviest tree in my collection over 300 kilos in weight just the trunk. It is massive and currently very large, however when I collected the tree it had a very nice and compact root ball, I think it has recover already and it is time for the chainsaw to begin its work this tree will make a nice informal bonsai
One Quarter Progression
Three Quarter Progression
¾ progression of Titan as I have call this tree with a fresh cut of the branches leaving the selected branches. I still need to hire a crane to lift this tree into the pot, after all at 600 + pounds I think I need it.
