I think it looks awesome! Maybe move a few branches here and there to make the foliage pads more defined... either way, I would love a tree like this.

I really like that. I don't think much of the pot though.

Nice tree!

I agree on the pot as I think it's too distracting...

Also, adding my two-penneth, I'd simplify the higher daedwood branch, as again I think it's got too much going on and takes the eye away from the rest of the tree.

You did ask!!

That looks like that tree I saw developed in a bonsai book from England! The tree looks like it and the pot looks like it. Its a celebrity! I will need its autograph. Or am I seeing a celebrity look-alike? What a Face I don't think you should remove any dead wood, you can never get it back if you change your mind. How about just making it twiggier (is that a word?) at the ends of branches? I'm a newbie so what do I know....

Restyle of this Scots Pine

Hi Dave
If the tree was mine I would lose the Jins (too distracting), leave a short stub,clean up the needles and plant it in either a round unglazed drum pot or some sort of rustic round or oval pot. Where you live Dave Jones is the man to see.
Cheers Bob

I agree with all of the comments so far.

A word or two on that upper jin: We strive to make our trees look old and weathered, survivors of all the inclemencies that Ma Nature can throw at them. Jin, or deadwood, is part of this, and some trees are ornately decorated with it. But it has to look natural -- and possible.

In your tree, that jin is too thin and spindly to have survived the first winter storm on the mountaintop on which your tree resides (in our minds). Something much shorter, and with jagged ends, indicating where the branch broke and blew away would be more appropriate.

Jin are easily overdone, and it takes time to "see" what is going to look right.
