Pinus Sylvestris

Post  Cronic on Sat Jul 13, 2013 2:04 pm

a pine i bought a good month ago..




restyled during workshops with Danny Use



repotting will be for next season, since it's too hot at the moment to risk anything.. so next up for this tree is putting it in the right angle in it's pot and than just let it grow..

I sure think your pine would relish a few years in the ground, if you want girth and taper on that trunk. The ground speeds up development in the trunk and the whole tree benifits , the Japanese develop there pines this way. Cheers Neil

Looks like a decent material with good potential. I would introduce a spiral shari given the twisted nature of the trunk... initially, it will be a very thin strip which you would need to expand slowly over the future growing seasons (provided the tree stays healthy).

As for the current design, I think the lowest right branch is bit too low.

it's going in the garden next spring

sadly the top has died off.. you could already see in the images that the needles were already lighter in colour and in the weeks after styling that entire branch died.. pale 

i have now bend the 2nd branch on the right to become the new top in a later stage..

I would let the tree recover before you do anymore bending. Let it grow and feed it well when appropriate.

well.. it'll get stronger once planted in my garden.. i have another Sylvestris that i'm pulling out of the garden to work on and this one will take it's place there..
it will do well there.. the one i'm pulling out has grown enormously over the last 2 years..
