California Incense Cedar
3/2018: I collected this as a small sprout in Trinity Co in 2014. It has been growing in the ground in my yard since then.
This year I chopped the trunk and bent a branch up to become the new leader and it seems to have survived that so far.
I will leave it to grow and heal for another year or two before moving it to a pot.
2/5/19: The trunk is thick enough at the base now so I collected it into a large wood box to help ensure it’s survival. The new leader experiment worked but ended up being angled so we’ll see how it goes.
