little mugo pine

Post  MerschelMarco on Thu Sep 16, 2010 8:45 pm

Here ist a short story of another mugo pine. I found this tree in the summer of 2003 (Photo1).




As one can see the neddles were quite far away from the fat trunk. But only within two years after collecting, the pine got a lot of buds in the old Wood (Photo2). In the autumn 2006 after repotting the tree in a grey pot in spring, the tree became its first styling.




Interessting that at this time the old foliage was completly replaced by the new buds in the old wood. In the autumn 2008 the tree was repotted again in this smaller pot (Photo3).



The last Picture is a recent one from September 2010. The tree is only 32 cm high.




I think the Top should be placed a little bit more to the left side.

regards,
Marco

I like it as it is, very impressive. My second favourite species after the best...Scots.

Will, almost all of my trees are styled (and collected) myself.

The tree is not a tanuki as one may think when you only see the photos. Also the trunk isn`t so thick (21 cm at the base) as he appears, but it is extremly twisted. The photo from last year with the marked living parts may give you an impression.




regards,
Marco

Great pine. It fits in what you describe before in another topic: "I like Bonsai who are not too “obvious” too “ascertainable” at the first moment but those who want to be explored, if you know what I mean."

Do you mean The kind of blurred line between root and canopy?

Marco, what an incredible tree! It tells a fantastic story with the twists and deadwood. FYI, my first impression wasn't tanuki. Very Happy I am amazed at how quickly the foliage pads developed. Salut, Todd

By repotting the tree about three years ago, the pine had to be tilt to the right side to get the roots into the pot. This has caused some disadvantages for example the horizonal trunk lines and the overpowered taper of the trunk. Now the Pine was set a little bit upright again and the crown was edited a little bit.

Regards,
Marco

Beautiful transformation into a beautiful tree. It's like watching the metamorphosis of a butterfly.

This year the Pine made quite short needles, so I had to make a photo.

That's what Mugos do if you succeed in not killing them. This one is beautiful. Where did this tree come from originally if you don't mind sharing the information.
