It is time to do a cleanup of the California Juniper that I collected. My goal here is to remove all the dead foliage to be able to identify any changes in the healthy foliage, and provide better aeration and mist penetration for the remaining foliage.
Here are 4 photos of different portions of the tree before the cleanup.
Here are a few before and after photos side by side:
After doing this initial clean up I went back and removed small pieces that I missed. I identified a few places that might be turning yellow around the tree. I’ll keep a look out for those portions in the coming weeks.
Here’s the beauty after I was done.
Soon it’ll be time to move outdoors and get some shade!
