Tree-Care in Japan

I never cease to wonder at the meticulousness with which tree's are 'managed' in Japan. Here is a collection of photographs of Japan's arborists and their art:

'Walking-sticks' for a 300-year-old Pine at Hamarikyu Garden, Downtown Tokyo

A conical snow-cap protection for a carefully manicured tree (Tea house at Hamarikyu Garden)

"Kamo-maki" (Straw-mat wrapping). Winter protection for trees. Harmful insects are encouraged to make their home in the warmth of this straw wrapping rather than the tree itself! (Hamarikyu Garden)

A tree being pruned at Hibiya Park, Tokyo

 Stilts to support Maple trunks until they can handle the wind-storms on their own (Tsukuba University Hospital)
