2 seedling test
Here are a few photos of a test fusion I did. Notice how the wire twist is cutting into the tree trunks. This is not hurting the tree and will eventually be absorbed into the trunk. If the twist is removed the fusion may separate. The wounds will heal quickly because of the rough texture of the bark on Metasequoia. A smoother bark will take longer to hide scars. Also notice how one seedling is larger and beginning to dominate the other. They were both the same size when tied together. This also happened on other tests I did. It will be interesting to see how this affects the 37 seedling trunk of Fusion Project 1.
