hi!

this is a Pithecellobium tortum, we call Quiebracho here in Venezuela, i'm not sure about the name in english, but i think is brazilian raintree or something like that. This was collected 12 year ago and is 67 cms (26 inches) tall.

thanks for read this

karim

I was looking the first picture i post and like always, definitively felt that something was seeming rare, so i decide to make some changes to make the tree look a little older...i would like to listen some commentary or suggestions. thanks

Hi Karim, I like your lower picture, it really looks like a big old tree. It is looking good. although you would still need to round up the top part. Hope to see it soon.

Hi Karim,

Congratulations on a wonderful tree. Well the tree is great in more ways than one. For starters, terrific trunkline, great taper, the root flare (nebari) is perfect. The branch ramification is perfect and so is the canopy. The icing on the cake is definitely shari on the trunk.

What do I not like about the tree?? Well actually nothing. Everything blends together so beautifully to create the look of a very mature tree :)

Cheers

Very nice tree, but in my opinion it diserves a better and a bit bigger pot.
Never the less a great tree, wish we in europe could have those kind of trees.

Kind regards
Peter
