bonsai general - 44 views
As most of you know, it can be difficult to find a good material for black pine bonsai outside Japan. This requires a certain level of creativity. Seed production is a good approximation. Another is the conversion of bonsai trees landscape.
I recently bought a pair of black pines developed as landscape trees with the hope that someday could become bonsai. The larger of the two was taller than me.

Despite his great size and line interesting link, the tree had a couple of features that made me think seriously about working with the tree as bonsai. The trunk is large enough, and a good crust begins to develop.

a good trunk is a great start to a tree, but the branches are also important, and this tree had only a small number of very large branches. I have not had much time to think about it, but I knew I had some starting points so interesting that suit the treehouse.
So what to do with it? I’m curious to hear your suggestions. I’ll post pictures of the initial work late this week.
