Styling for a pine

Post  Jake16 on Thu Jul 05, 2012 7:14 pm

I found this pine growing at the side of my yard, I think it is either a virginia or scotch. It has a decent taper and not bad branching, formal upright. The problem is that most of the branch come from the same point as many pines do. I want a look that is not the left, right, back styling and medium age (crown a little pointed and branches not so wide.). I want the tree to look natural with out looking like a bad styling. Any advice along with picture examples would be great. (any conifer in this style works).
About this old


Thanks

hi,
yes I would leave it and keep looking - there are so many pines that are not particularly suitable as bonsai material, and young seedlings that have grown spoked branches and very long gaps between them fit that group perfectly.

happy hunting,
