This Japanese Black Pine Pinus thunbergii was connected by Bobby Curttright. Bobby has been my apprentice for more than 2 1/2 years, and wiring is becoming quite accomplished. The necessary fine attention to detail reaches a level of nerd-dom with the best Wranglers wire. It has been a quick study with her, and placement organization and continue to build layers of complexity.

Bobby achieved this Pino Black Japanese ( Pinus thunbergii ) over the last year, which it means decandling in spring, selection of buds and needles in the fall, and then the wiring in the latency period. about a year ago I made an important tree pruning. But from that time have not touched and has been the project of Bobby.
