here are some pictures of the deadwood work I did this afternoon. This work was mostly aimed at removing as much rotted wood from the inside of the tree. And than treating the deadwood with lime sulfur. Enjoy the pictures!
Like sucking the eye out off a moose! Hi-hi!
Poking from the right entrance and removing from the middle one!
A very intimate view of the cave like inside of the “SWAN”. Preventing this fragile section from further decay, will be my main worry in the future. As long as I can control that, the tree will outlive me by fare! 🙂
When I was cleaning the inside from the hole in the middle front, the wood dust disappeared from the right side exhaust pipe, like a genie from his lamp!
Although it is with pain in my heart, I do have to protect this deadwood every now and than In the future, to keep things under control. And after I had tasted , the lime sulfur I am applying here, several time on the deadwood of this pine, I discovered that this terrible pearly white deadwood will loose it’s unnatural glow very quickly. And I also have some Trix up my sleeve to hurry that proses a little bit more.
Happy… happy happy! Happy….. happy happy! 🙂
