Not particularly helpful comment Kim, but I'll give you the benefit and assume you meant it as a joke. I suggest the poster will not get it though, as I suspect they are using babelfish or another online translator, English probably not being their first language.

I have just PMed a suggestion to a Moderator as to how we could overcome such language issues, but in the immediate term my understanding is that Casper has asked us for advice on his pines, including a virtual and an indication of what work is needed on the trees and over what sort of timescale.

Casper - I like your trees and think they have potential to be improved. If you would like - please post your message in your own language (also tell me what that language is please), and I'll see if I (or another IBC member) can come up with better English wording for you.

Thanks

Fiona

Casper - A good looking tree. The most important thing will be to get some back budding by proper candle and needle reduction. I would also wire out some of the small braches so they are more consistent and don't rise up and try to compete with the leader. It also looks to me like there may be a couple of whorls containing 3 branches, partticularly at the top of the main tree. You should reduce this to 1 or perhaps 2 to prevent swelling. - Marty

I believe that since the tree trunks are nearly the same size I'd think about adding more thicker trees to the forest composition or splitting these up to make individual shohin trees. Also as Marty said they need wire and better cultivation for them to fill out into pine pads.

I think the three trunks work well together. I like the negative spaces they create, which the stone at the base also helps to delineate. Bringing the low left hand branch down a little further might enhance the effect. If you can retain the overall image once the pads fill out, I think it will be quite a pleasing composition.

I like it too, and the similarity between the trees only adds to the image for me. I've seen pinon pine clumps like this out in the New Mexico high desert.

I like your concept for this tree but I see a problem keeping it that way. This is not a criticism but an observation. You are going to have to at some point, start dealing with the vigor imbalance or the right portion of your composition is going to continue to decline and the middle portion of the composition is going to continue to develop at the cost of the other two.
