WOW ! What an amazing gallery. Refreshing to see a gallery containing only deciduious trees. I cannot remember the last time i saw trees of this caliber. The ramification is truly stunning. It reminds you that what you thought of as Bonsai in your collectons are merely the beginnings. These trees are very old,so have they been in the family for generations ?. Can you imagine the normal maintainance like leaf stripping or prunning. Do they still need some of these ,or does the fineness of the twigs mean the leaves stay small. The more you study these trees the more questions you raise. This is the best gallery yet. Regards, Peter.
it is interesting that you describe the ficus as decidious tree.First I thought,they are evergreens per se.But when you look up some literature they consider the climate the trees are growing in.In temperate areas they are classified as evergreens,in areas with longer dry periods they are considered decidious.
What are your thoughts about it?What are "true" decidious trees?
