Elegant one

Post  Tom Benda on Mon Jan 09, 2012 6:42 pm

First chapters of the story of this czech bog pine are similar to the one of my larch.
Dug circa in 2000, few years in the ground with almost no results,
starting by transplanting to the first bonsai pot and moving to the full sunlight in my current garden.
First photo 2005



Preparing the material was on a good way, so I decided to bring it to the summer (2008,9?) workshop
in the garden of Petr Herynek, who's book inspired many czech bonsai artists to start their life hobby.
There were many friends and many ideas. Maybe it was just fun,
but I was under presure, which resulted in placing the tree into seclusion.
So the first work on the pine took place as late as this weekend.
Few photos, others here: https://picasaweb.google.com/T.Benda/Elegantn





The trunk has very slight, but elegant movement (sometimes good visible in the tree's shade on the photo),
although it seems straight in some parts.
The whole picture seems untidy due to many needles left,
but 7 entire branches were cut, so I didn't want to reduce more green.
Let's just care and wait for the next work.

Tom, are you over rotating it?

I so agree with your decision to tip it upright. Much more elegant.

John, You mean to keep the original planting angle?

Rob, I can't understand completely. I don't know if it's about planting angle or new front.

Crust, thank You.

That's a very nice development in the past 6 or 7 years. I also don't know what Rob means by "over rotating" it...

That's great development in styling and trunk girth in just 7 yrs! I too like it more upright. Really nice start!

Tom, I meant the change in the planting angle from slanting to vertical. Can the way the roots they enter the ground support the new planting angle? Seems like the roots on the left side will be up in the air. And to me it is a bit boring as an vertical upright. I like the slant. Very Happy

Thank You, guys.

There will be no problem with the roots. They can be wired, if necessary.

I saw this vertical tree in my material. I have lots of other pines, some of them slanting.
Let's see next winter :-) or maybe in summer.
