The August meeting was good. I asked Tony Oswin to bend my tall Scots Pine. It was originally about 1.5 metres tall.

Everyone was fascinated to see the effort and expertise in bending the trunk on this old tree. Starting with a length if thick wire along the trunk, this was wrapped with tape in two thicknesses. The two lengths of 6mm wire was wrapped aroung the trunk, and the bending began. Lots of effort by Tony with Trevor helping.
