Another Thuja-project.
Just two years under my control yet.

period of time. A really ugly stump at that stage ...
But on the other hand i like Thuja so much, can't help myself ...
'Would like to see the original wildlings in Canada for example ..

And this is how it went on with the linden_clump,
before the winter styling-session .
The tree over all shorter, more compact and more designing options.
The moss was stolen by mean blackbirds!
It will be replaced after the carving and styling is done ...
