Pinus nigra the bat

Post  Karl Thier on Fri Feb 18, 2011 6:31 pm

Hi people, this Pinus nigra austriaca is a very old tree, determined over 100 years. First picture is 4 years after the excavation 2001. The lower branch is unfortunately died. My wife made the pot, I think he fits well

Before the first styling 2001

So the jaw looks after the restyle 2011.

I think the design works well without the lower branch. Maybe a bit more spacing up top to make it less of an umbrella canopy.

And the pot is nice too. How much did she charge you for it? Surprised

Karl, I really like the pot and the tree. I love how the tree has a very aged feel....probably because it is so old--funny how that works.

To me, the tree looks quite a bit thicker and more tapered through the lower trunk. That seems like quite a dramatic change to make in such a short time (relatively speaking) since the tree was already over 100 years old. Is this an accurate observation and if so, what do you think helped make such a massive change in a relatively short time?

Karl, the new styling and pot improved the bonsai 100%!
