A nice transformation: Scots Pine

Post  Twisted Trees on Mon Jan 07, 2013 6:03 pm

This tree was collected about ten years ago and placed in the garden to strengthen. After about 5 years it went to a nursery pot. It underwent its first styling in 2010. I placed it in a mica bonsai pot in 2011. I've named it "Dancing Crane."

Very nice tree. How do you picture the future development of this tree? Do you plan on a development that exposes the fine branch detail we see in the 2012 styling photo, or are you going to fill out the foliage pads as the latest photo seems to indicate with the tree in a bonsai pot?

I've been waiting for the tree to establish a better root system and then begin foliage reduction and more defined foliage pads.

That's going to be a beautiful tree! I love the energy in the roots.

you need to keep the crown rather small imho, because the standing roots give it more or less a feminin look. A large crown suggest a mascular tree.
the pot in which it is now need to be changed into one with no or smaller rim, big rim is also for mascular trees.

just my opinion,

Still waiting to find the right pot. That was a mica pot that was available. I'm also waiting for the roots to develop more, especially on the main root before determining a new pot for it.

Too "hairy", but great tree: would like to see it with 2/3rds of the needles removed.

I like it a lot Cool

It's "hairy" because I'm still pushing growth on it in order to improve the roots. I'll probably start to work on needle size reduction this growing season. Scotch respond very well and can wind up with about 1/2 inch size needles.
