Here is a large Juniper that I rescued from a construction site close to work. The workers thought I was nuts... trying to uproot this monster in business casual attire right after it rained. However, I did not forget my spade, pick-axe, a lopper, and a pair of old sneakers to do the job with in the wet mud. I was being eyed upon with my toys as if I was in a zoo on the other side of the cage.

Well, it was either now or never for this tree because it was soon going to be uprooted by a small crane and into a dumpster. Take a look and let me know if the effort was worth it... I think it has a lot of potential.

Dimensions: 27" height, 6" base, 4.5 feet canopy

Aman,

Good that you have dug out this monster..... it has the makings of a potential bonsai.

The juniper is showing signs of growth. I think it should be strong enough to work on styling next year.

Here is another view of the trunk:

Here is another angle the tree might look good in (I finally got the whole tree in the picture).



And here is a virtual of a possible future.



Although I prefer cascade, this angle balances the weight towards the center and will be a lot easier to maintain and repot in the future.

WaSalam,
This tree is now in someone else's collection; carving would definitely had been a future option.
