Hollywood Juniper

So the owner of this beautiful, old Juniperus chinensis (Hollywood Juniper, right) wanted it removed. My goal was to make it smaller and more sculptural so that the owner would want to keep it. It was a challenge. I would have liked to kept the height and taken a lot less out of it.

But I felt like if I had left it thick the owner would eventually have it completely removed. I also did a quickie on the Corymbia ficifolia on the left. That poor tree had been topped badly. Both of the clients are much happier. For now, the trees have been saved.
