I am not sure what you are asking or at what stage of development you are at in your bonsai skills. How about having a discussion wth us instead of a couple of random statements and some teaser pictures of some not so bad material. At this point we just don't know if you know what you have and what to do with it..

That's no fun.
I don't have questions.
But I would be looking at cutting them down some.

all trees look like they have potential, in the first set of photos, the 2rd tree caught my eye as a good one, and the following ones are also very attractive material. The first would probably fit well with the style you mentioned, good job on IDing that piece for that style, searching for material with a certain style in mind closes doors and causes missed opportunity, having the vision is the biggest obstacle it seems. I am just personally not drawn to that particular style,

in the second set of photos, the shot showed a different view of the second tree, which my eye originally assumed had a little wiggle at soil level, but was hidden by foliage. After seeing that, i now see that you have an opportunity to attempt the illusive formal upright, it seems the taper may be sufficient, and the structure seems to be there. I think after the new needles harden you can think about a top reduction and branch selection since its growing strong. with luck you may be able to repot into a quality bonsai soil possibly by spring 18, but surely by needle harden time/ mid summer 18'.

the rest of them seem to have great features. I suggest trying differnt methods of training, styling, pruning, and growing with them. maybe put one in the ground, colander, grow bag, bonsai pot etc.. test a couple soil mixes, timing of pinching, pruning, reductions etc, timing of fertilizing, and types of fertilizing. In doing so you will gain first hand experience, and become more familiar with the species you seem to have ample access to. its one thing to read and listen to advice, but doing it yourself and analyzing the results, the how and why, will really give you a lot of information and personal data to draw from that will only increase your skills, methods, and vision for future collecting endeavors. all in all, well done sir.

I agree with Vance and I was unsure of the purpose of the tread?
Was it to as for stying advice and ideas or just a random , look what i found post? which for me is not what forums are for.

If you post an unrefined tree or stock, expect to get some suggestions, and Vance was just asking the above question to clarify IMHO

wish I could collect Scots pines. Great species for bonsai and collected trees are the best.

Starting at the top of your post I think the trees in photos 1 and 2 are good stock. The trees in photos 3 and 4 are not interesting and look like nursery stock. The trees in the last post look good. Therefore I suggest you collect the old looking weather beaten trees.

Secondly I suggest not to work on collected conifers for 3 years minimum and 4 may be better. Lots of sun and moderate amount of feed and don't overwater. Protect properly during the winter.

Good luck,

Also, these are precious trees, treat them accordingly and don't collect too many.

Ken

a thread under members trees needs no purpose other than to show a tree...

advice and questions are what the questions portion of the forum is for...

leatherback hi maybee in germany better to wait untill start of september..heres a little cooler..
but best time is spring time april-may..
try move the tree a little...if lose easyer to get it up with a bigger rotball minimum like a thick pizza..
more easy on bedrock or sandy ground...then plant it water, fertilize for min 2 years..no pruning..
pruning wireing..after 4 years...or longer..
1 year make roots 2 year 3 year build foliage...im no expert but thats what walter pall and Ryan Neil (experts)
are saying if i got it right..

that is indeed a safe way to approach collected material...

Andy Smith of Golden Arrow Bonsai http://www.goldenarrowbonsai.com/goldenarrowbonsai.com/Home.html is also a renowned collector here in the states and he suggests leaving them in their first container for 2-3 years before repotting...
and then it should stay in that second pot for as long as possible, so choose well when deciding on that second pot !!! Wink
