I collected these during a working bee with a mate after collecting Trident Maple seeds off his tree .He said i would make a fortune selling the seed so could i give him a hand to eradicate some Noxious weeds .I thought Blackberries of Patersons curse , bugger me this was the weed he had in mind

2 MINUTES TO DIG

All these tree were the result of Johns attempt to eradicate them by chopping the tops off .Little did he know you have to severe below the bottom branch or shoot or pines will regrow .We cleared well over 150 plus trees and i left 50 chop tops on purposed and offered to dig them for him next year if they sprouted ..One good turn deserves another . After 4 hours of hard labour i was doing cartwheels around the paddock after i collected the "Monster Chop "

your Monster Magic is a great bit of material to work with.

Hi Guzzigirl its going to be something one day , i hope i,m capable of the task . One would think i should be into smaller ones with all the Health issues but it not every day you get the opportunity to pluck a tree like this out of the ground and drop it into a pot .Cheers
