Japanese black pines

Post  Guest on Sun Jun 23, 2013 11:52 am

From the Taikan-ten exhibition in Kyoto 2009 was I lucky to find two blackpines....I was hoping, I had money enough for one, skinny but nice, but ended up with two pines for the money...unbelievable Smile

The prices on both was low because the trees was not in good conditions

front
The first had two strong tops, and the lowest branch was close to dying, quit intense work, have brought the lowest branch back


back...the tree is standing 15 cm. tall

The second was also very weak in the lowest branch.....it is also doing much better now, also have it gained a lot of weight on the trunk
the tree has two usefull sides, and is also 15 cm

Now will there be refined candework and vireing in the future...up to now has it been the more rough work that was needed, and vireing was only pulling dawn branches....hope I can do a good job....

Kind regards Yvonne

These are outstanding! In this part of the US, these trees would go for extremely high prices.

Very nice! They look very healthy now. I'm sure you'll develop them nicely in the future.

superb trunks and trees with a great future - well spotted and good horticulture for getting all branches balanced.

cutting the needles is the only thing that spoils the trees for no reason i think.

Great looking trunks with maturity, shame needles have been shortened but you cant deny solid trees.

Hi Guys

Thanks for the nice words regarding the quality of the trees....the second photo, of second tree is also my natural front Smile, and will stay that way, but if under pressure can the backside be used as a front in a display.

The trees have had, due to the lot of fertilizer, they needed to get back in a shape, 15 cm long needels the last years. Now I wanted to see how the trees actully looked...also to be able to see what need to be done next, as the more refined work start now.
They have not been cut back for a exhibiton....Quit happy to see the reactions about the cut needels...it will maybe raise the bar for some people at exhibitions.

Kind regards Yvonne
