It’s planting season in the jungle!
The time has finally come to plant all of those palm trees and bushes. First though I’ll need to recycle the old trees.
I started by cutting the old trees off of their bases.
The old tree fronds had wire stems with wire wrapped around the stems to form the trunks. So I cut through all the layers of wire and then unwound the wire wrapping leaving only a single long stem at the bottom.
At this point I do not yet glue the trees in place. It’s easier to drill the holes for the other plants without the trees in place. I drill a number of holes placing the aquarium plant bushes as I go. Again there is no gluing at this point.
