Any questions?

yep- what are the different types of trees, and how are they different?

Aye, can the tree, overhang the, 8x8 baseplate???

Aye! The tree can overhang as much as you want, but make sure the overhang isn't attached to the baseplate.

If your question is referring to deciduous and coniferous trees, I have a few answers, but I will give you the least scientific and confusing one. Deciduous trees have leaves and lose them during the winter. Well, that isn't entirely true, because there are a few exceptions such as the tamarack. Conifers are cone bearing trees usually known as pines. I look forward to seeing your entry.

Then the, stump would have to be invisible. Because you said, that it could not, be attatched, to the 8x8, baseplate.

No, no. The stump can attach to the base because though it is overhang, it is part of the tree. Only the tree and it's parts can overhang the baseplate.

It is Deciduous, so it is great for the first round.

There is some controversy over my weeping willow not qualifying because the snot water baseplate is slightly larger than 8x8. I was under the impression that it still qualifies because of your response to my comment. So, therefore I am just double checking if it does still qualify.

The reason I started this contest was to find new tree techniques. The purpose of the 8x8 rule, was so that if anyone using the method were making a small vig, it would be easy to fit that technique on to the base plate. As long as it COULD fit on an 8x8 baseplate, you're OK. Maybe take a picture of it on an 8x8, just to make the other judges happy.

Alright, thanks for clearing that up. I will take some pictures of it soon on an 8x8.

Hey Max, I just remembered that I had to take my weeping willow apart for pieces so I can't take pictures of it on an 8x8. Is it okay with the judges if I still enter it?

It's fine with me, but they may take off a few points. I won't though.

After googling connifer I found out that nearly any forest tree falls into the category... this will be interesting to see how many peeps build a tree the shape of a cone.


This makes me think...does it have to be a connifer or can it be an Evergreen tree? It will be quite boring if everybody builds a Conifer lol and also Conifers are called conifers because they produce cones, not because they're cone shaped ;)
