Manzanita trees are so beautiful in their natural state that we often leave them as they are without adding foliage.  Sometimes, though, we have clients who prefer to have silk foliage added to the branches.  One way that we can add foliage without hiding the characteristic beauty of the natural tree is through a technique we call tipping.  In this approach smaller artificial foliage is sparingly added to the upper branches of the tree.  The tree takes on a definite appearance of being alive but all the work that Mother Nature did to create these natural work of art still shows through.  The trees, when finished, resemble bonsai and  they're great for lots of locations and decors.  Enjoy this sample from our clients residential setting.
