Japanese Black Pine Poll

Post  mike page on Sat Jan 30, 2010 7:30 pm

I won this Japanese Black Pine in a club raffle. Current height is about 43 inches. I don't see it staying as is, so I'm posting 3 images and a poll to see what other opinions are.
Image 1 is "as is"
Image 2 is "tall bunjin"
Image 3 is "chop job"

I voted for the 3rd option, but I would leave all the lower branches.

I'd go for number 2 but some more movement in upper trunk.

Option three certainly but leave the bottom branch on see how it progresses.
Remember you can't put it back on after you've chopped it off!

This reminds me of one of those demo trees where the artist

1. splits or hollows the long straight portion to make it more flexible,
2. uses raffia to bind wire lengthwise into the split or hollow, and
3. bends the trunk to bring the foliage to a better location.

I like #2, but of the two lower right branches, I would loose the bottom one, it appears smaller than the one above it. Over time I would add some movement to the trunk.

Mike,

Your offer (options) was not fair.

I go for #1. The tree can be developed as an interesting bunjin while keeping everything you have there, just repositioned. This includes reducing the height of the top section drastically with restyling (a la Pavel)

IMHO you have far to many #2s add a little versatility to your collection. Yeah, I am not a big fan of flat tops.

Option 4, you could always send it to me Very Happy

I'm with Rick. #1 for me. There are plenty of #2"s and #3"s out there. #1 just looks much more interesting. Its charming and unique. Neither of which could be said for #2 or #3.

no3

I'd have to agree with those who have chosen No.3 and have given a comment, that you keep the lwer branch as well (for now, anyway)

You can also graft a lower long branch to a higher spot on the trunk by bending and grafting.
