Very nice Rafal, very.

Did you consider a remove of right side branch?
Maybe after that, you can use a flat, wide pot and place a pine in center?
From where you collected such a good pine ?

Hi,
This right side branch is root. Later I will make of him the jin or I cut off him.
I collected this pine from my forest in central Poland.
abcd,
Thank You for virtual. This is very good idea.

Can you propose pot?

I don't know how are the roots, but a smallest pot , with curving edges will be better, but, is it possible ? virtual pot.

Although it would hurt me, I'd get rid of the trunk on the left.

Two (too) different styles.

Cześć Alain,
Bonsai has unique character now and I will not cut off this left branch.
I think that this is good bonsai. He has a lot of natural dead wood on both branches Wink

no, and, no

i quite like it the way it is. Yes you could play with the trunk line, but if a tree looks good the way it is...why feel the need to do anything more than that? I dont think it alters the quality... yes, its all a bit nearer to each other but is it necessary to produce a stronger/better feel to the tree? I think it breathes elegancy allready, a tall elegant and pride lady.

And i would certainly not pick a much smaller pot. The tree can use the pot as it is, while it gets potbound and you fertilize and water it properly, it can take on more leaf/needles... If you have a fuller crown that smaller pot will look totally out of place.

Hi Rafal,
It was just an idea Smile
As Alain wrote - two different styles of trunk - a bit distracting me too.
But if it was mine, I probably wouldn´t be so brave to cut it Very Happy

Hi Rafal,

thanks for sharing this interesting pine. I think cutting off either of the trunks would be a terrible mistake - it's the two trunks that make the tree stand out and interesting. I would personally try to toy with the taller trunk's crown and make it more dynamic and corresponding with the smaller trunk, also, imho, the tree would benefit from a less obvious triangle composition. That said, from what I understand it's the tree's aragake and it is a very good one - a great job you did there. I'm looking forward to see the tree's next styling. Have you taken a photo of the tree before its styling? All best!

I really like the tree. It really demonstrates the uniqueness of design, time and weather can impose on a piece of material. I believe, and this is just my opinion, doing anything to drastically alter this tree by removing one or other of the two trunks would be border-line criminal. Nature offered up this tree and when it was harvested I believe that a commitment was made to preserve what it is.
