Judge Comments:

"Would be better if trunk peeked in and out of the foliage. Don’t need to see all of that dead wood. Than it won’t look so much like an implant." - Guy Guidry

"Almost everything is wrong with this presentation; pot, stand, branches, trunk (live vein??)" - Andy Rutledge

Judge Comments:

"Good treatment of old stump. A slightly smaller pot or shift tree a little to right will create better balance." - Guy Guidry

"The pot is entirely inappropriate (round/oval glazed is required). This material has been styled fairly, but it is decades away from display quality – if it will ever get there (huge chop-trunk material is no good)." - Andy Rutledge

"Strong base anchors tree firmly in ground .Pink flowers reminds us another winter has past. Spring is here at last." - Guy Guidry

"Poor branching, with poofts instead of pads. Evocative of pink lollypops. The soil and the trunk should have been prepared for show." - Andy Rutledge

"Unique use of first branch at base creates the elusion of a tree growing in the forest!" - Guy Guidry

"There’s no reason to show this deciduous tree in-leaf, other than to hide the poor branching. The pot color is only appropriate for winter viewing." - Andy Rutledge

"Mother daughter composition looks real classical and natural. Years of patience and good technique have paid off! Stunning!" - Guy Guidry

"This is good material that is poorly presented: bad placement in pot, pot is wrong color, wire on the branches(!), the branches have been arranged into pads (not appropriate for maple). A shame that this tree has so many human errors." - Andy Rutledge

"Tree cascades out of slightly too small of a pot. Also if the primary branch on left were a little shorter the tree would have better balance. Beautiful trunk." - Guy Guidry

"The branches are poorly shaped (and the tree should pick 1 direction)" - Andy Rutledge
