After contemplating, I decided against using the birch logs. Main reason being is that they are about 3”-4” in diameter and I think they would over power a display of a 50 gal
high. If they were half the diameter, I’d try and make it work.
So keeping with the tree theme, I decided on going in a different direction. cringe worthy to some and the newest trend.... I know and I’m sorry. I’m a certified arborist and obviously love trees. Ive been keeping bonsais for over a decade. So yes I decided to make some bonsais for the display. I’m making them from scratch, with idea of a windswept look. It will be elevated, as if on a cliff, and have that windswept look you see of trees living in those conditions.
just did some shopping today and made the first step. Using Manzanita attached to a piece of dragon rock. I’ll post progress pics if anyone is interested. Also I plan on doing a diary of the build as well.
thanks look forward to everyone input and help.be safe out there. Stay home and play with your fish.
