Common Alder - branch bending
The recentely repotted Common Alder (alnus glutinosa) had two branches corrected today. Two bigger branches that could not really be bend with wire any more. I cut them to about half the branch width and then bent them. One I bent by forcing a wooden pen (recuperated branch from pruned plum) between two branches up to the point it closed the cut as good as possible. The other with thick wire on top secured with flexible tree binding rope and a guy wire.
