Here's what Todd Schlafer wrote about this transformation... "Before and after - Colorado Blue Spruce. This tree has a lot of sentimental value. This tree was given to me by Jerry Morris.

Structure was set in 2010 with @bonsaimirai and I wired it out on my own. It’s fun to see the progression of the tree and my eye." From Todd's fb timeline
