Yamadori Red Pine-*more pics added

Post  eugeniusgenx on Thu Jun 14, 2012 5:03 am

This is one of the best ones I have gotten this year. It has perked up nicely in is wooden training pot. Can't do too much with it this year, just want it to settle in to its new home. I do want to remove one of the lower branches now that it has perked up but don't want to stress it more than necessary, but wanting some input as to the trade of for the sun being able to get at the important top growth.

Canada=Northern Hempisphere=SUMMER-you may have collected these at the wrong time.

Minor correction: Canada=Northern hemisphere=Prince Edward Island=still spring(ish)-so the time may still be OK.

He didn't say when he'd actually collected it though, and from what he says in his Introduction it could very well have been earlier in the year. I also suspect he knows what he's doing.

Moved from west coast of Canada to Prince Edward Island. Lots of great native species here, Red Pine, White Pine, Larch, Jack Pine. Can you tell I am into Pines!? Anyway, just getting started again have gotten some outstanding Yamadori this year. I will post some to follow.

Peace

I've just googled Prince Edward Island and it sounds like a nice place to move to - both to live and for bonsai. Look forward to seeing some more of your finds eugeniusgenx. (can we assume your name is actually Eugene?)

It looks to me like you don't have much taper in the larger trunk, what about the smaller ones. It looks like three trunks from the base or one main trunk and two very low branches. There is a school of thought that we leave as much foliage as possible to help the tree build energy back into its roots. But, I think at some point you will be removing two of the three trunks/branches, you could take the next year to see how the tree recovers and which line looks the most promising.

Wow awesome all the replies!

I collected this bad boy about a month ago. As far as our weather goes I would say we are fine to collect until the end of June.
As of this year I have begun to follow the school of thought as to keeping as much foliage on the tree (pines) as possible until it establishes, perhaps for one full growing season with great results. The trees have bounced back remarkably quickly.

This one is doing well. You cannot see the taper at this angle. If you look to the left the part near the top is where it was broken before and it will get a jin.The foliage at the top has great ramification and unlike the branches near the bottom is better for styling later. My plan was to remove the lower branches and use them for deadwood. more pictures incoming.

Here are more pics:

As it is in its training pot


The trunk


The trunk with the old broken top


The option that I think is best based on position and ramification etc.


Subject to change as it grows of course. I do want to remove one of the bottom branches to get light onto the top branches I like.
