Hello Karl - nice to see you back here. I always love your trees and was just wondering yesterday what had happened to you!

May I ask what you have wrapped around the heavier branches that you needed to bend? It looks like electrical tape, but maybe that's just my screen. I'm just curious about your technique.

Thanks very much, and welcome back.

Hi Neil, The tree is 55cm high, 14cm diameter Nebari, see above. Wink

Hi jersanct, the black band is a cut in strips tube of a bicycle. Idea
I use such bicycle tubes for many years to form of strong branches, with no other one can hold together the wood tissue. ThumbsUp

What's odd is that like Norway spruce (Picea abies), Austrian pine is found all over this part of the US, but you practically never see it used for bonsai.
