Excellent work Przemek. A very well balanced tree, from difficult material. Well done.

Agreed it is a lovely result.

One small point that you can improve on with future projects. Don't cut off lower branches and jin them. Wire them down for a season or two so that they are growing with the same downward sweep as the branches above. When you are sure that their position is set, it doesn't matter if the wire has bitten in, remove the unwanted bracnches and jin them. It is a small trick that gives the growth consistency with the rest of the tree. It is also much easier than steam bending old hard jins, which frquently return to their original position after a bit of rain!

To paraphrase Southpark - "I've learned a lil' something today!" So obvious, yet I've not heard it mentioned once at any of the myriad workshops I've attended since becoming an obsessed begninner seven or so years ago. Perhaps an indication of the "everything done today" overhaste that has been highlighted so often as the major flaw of workshops.

Thanks, Kev.

Thanks for good words.

Kev - I agree in your's opinion any i have pat this trick. But this branches on down weren't yet, I must decide that must stay, in order to weren't be to much. Do you have any idea for pot ?

This is so true. Its fine to go for the quick image but your often left with elements of the tree that are unconvincing. The branch on this pine was not needed but it was still wired and left to grow. Two things achieved. A more convincing dead branch and Thickening of the tree.
