European spruce #2

European spruce, Picea abies, collected in Germany in 1986, - first image. Then two images as of May 2012. The tree has not been fully wired in ten years. The branches start to look a bit poodely. So the whole tree was carefully edited, many small branches removed, everything wired. It too a few days! Now the wire will stay on for three to four years. Then the tree should shine and be presentable again.
