Shore Pine Design Exercise-

michael hagedorn

During rewiring a tree is a good time to rethink the design and look for ways to improve it. We gave this Shore Pine that kind of scrutiny this past week.

This is one of our two-part series, which will conclude next week.

Here is the Shore Pine before some changes. Next week we’ll show you what we did. For now, tell us what you’d do…

Buenas tardes una vez mas amig@s.

Primero de todo desearos a los que podáis unas muy buenas y merecidas vacaciones, yo de  momento no me he movido de Madrid, y creo que como mucho me iré una semana al norte, para mi eso ya es suficiente, y mas con la que esta cayéndonos encima!
