"Some attempt should be made to craft structure and to create interplay between the foliage and the distracting, exposed deadwood trunk." - Andy Rutledge

Judge Comments:

"Smaller tree complements mother tree nicely. Very harmonious and natural." - Guy Guidry

"The stand should be much larger, the pot is inappropriately colored for an in-leaf tree, and deciduous trees should not be shown in-leaf." - Andy Rutledge

Judge Comments:

"She is very nice. Let foliage relax a little and grow a bit for a more natural appearance." - Guy Guidry

"The pot is of unsuitable color. This one could be greatly improved if the whole thing were tilted toward the left by about 10 – 15 degrees. Where’s the stand?" - Andy Rutledge
