After some thinking, we have found basic lines along young taxus trees will travel up the dead trunk.
The stump with finished drilling.
"New growth" is in place. Young trees are fastened to the old stock using nails or screws.
There is really not much to see now. These young trees will not be further worked this year. There will be no wireing or cutting extra growth. The main aim is to fatten the live veins as quickly and as much as possible. Any cutting will be unproductive. If everything goes well, first shaping is to be expected next year, together with some cleaning and working on deadwood. I will report further developement.
