Overall measurements to reduce maintenance, continued 3

Larix, after cutting

Again, a beautiful mature tree but just too un-maintainable, at least after my illness as described in: “Less is more”? Overall measurements to reduce maintenance.

Future will tell how this will develop. The tree is very strong and I have a good feeling about it.

The first in this series was:  “Less is more”? Overall measurements to reduce maintenance and "Overall measurements to reduce maintenance, continued 2".

In The front garden compartment, two trees needed treatment being the Larix (Europeaus) decidua and the Prunus lusitanica, perhaps more a shrub than a tree.

This is to show how to maintain the beautiful mature Larix (Europeaus) decidua tree became a burden.

In Approach to realization of a (Japanese Zen) garden, 6 - Maintenance and tuning. you find the general methodology based on six iterative realization phases and the details on how we used this to realize Tsubo-en.
