Old Mugo Pine

Post  Peter E. on Thu Apr 29, 2010 7:08 pm

I aquired this tree a few years ago. Shortly after i posted some pictures on the old IBC site asking about a change of style.
I love the elegant shape it is but wondered if it needed to be more compact.
It would be interestering to see how the new generation of IBC'ers respond about a re-style.





This pic' was taken last year after needle thinning.The earlier pictures show how sparse the foliage was and how much the tree has back-budded.



This option was to plant it on a piece of slate but keep the same style.



The other option was to compact the tree to make a tighter image.



This last picture was just trying out a different background for the photo's.

So the question is; do i change the style ?.

Hello Peter. I prefer the more compact image and movement in pic 3. Being that Mugo are very flexible, you could replicate the shape of the base, at the middle and top.

I like the third image best; there is more movement and it "just seems to be the best fit". Nice tree. BTW, I like the slab very much, but not with that tree. Since the tree doesn't go with slab, I'd be happy to relieve you of this "rock". Laughing
Regards, Todd
