Office Sapling #5 (Branched Sapling) by Nader G. Vakili

Branched Sapling

(Office Sapling #5)

Northern Wild Cherry on Red Maple base
103"H x ~35" diameter

Two ribbon-like branches, one longer than the other, rise in a narrow “V” from a knob, all set on a rough, somewhat flat pillow of a Red Maple base.

During the decades that I spent in laboratories and offices, I always wished that there were some type of botanical entity that one did not have to fuss with, clean the leaves off the floor, give it water and fertilizer, etc. Finally I developed the criteria for an office plant: it should take the minimum of floor space, should not need attending to, and should serve as a focal point for contemplation. I came up with the idea of 'Office Sapling' or forms thereabout, and have completed five of them.
