Despite six people turning up to my natter night there were only two trees brought along.
This first one a small Chinese Elm brought by Margery just needed a little clip out.
This tree is overwintered in a cold green house and it is still producing foliage, despite the cold weather.
After I gave it a clean out of unwanted branches and also shortened a few others, it is looking a lot better.
Then Ken M arrived with this White Pine, it is not looking very well at the moment with a lot of very brown needles. However the buds do look ok, so it is fingers crossed for Spring to arrive to see if they do start to open.
The tree had all the wire removed and the compost loosened up a little to let air into it.
We will just have to wait and see what happens.
