Japanese Black Pine - Before and After

Post  thomasj on Mon Jan 04, 2010 6:37 pm

I picked up this little guy near the end of summer and could hardly wait to do the fall work of wiring and plucking. It's a very healthy tree and not very old I'm assuming because the branches don't have that nice old looking bark yet. I'm also thinking of repotting in a round pot this time. Smile

Nice work Thomas. I like the way you brought the branch down to camouflage some of the euro, which I find a little overwhelming for such a small tree when in plain view.

Someone needs to suggest a better pot, though. It's too nice a tree for that pot.

Yeah as I mentioned in the original post, I would like to repot it in a round pot if I can find the right one. Either way it will definetly be going in something else.

As for that big wound that's sealed up, it was the one thing that paused me on buying the tree for a while, but I eventually bought it simply because the tree was too good to pass up because of something so ugly. The wound wasn't sealed when I bought the tree so I began to sear the area that was starting to close which wasn't very much, and hopefully it won't take but a few years to close up. Laughing

Hi Thomas.

Very nice development. Wound on the trunk overgrown. It takes time.
I tried the virtual, how to hide the wound, and I think increasing elegance.

Here in France, the best camouflage for euros is Switzerland. Laughing
