How's this white pine? I believe it's pretty famous in Japan and I can see why. A perfect tree in my eyes.
The way it has been treated over the years shows real restraint and respect. I think it takes a lot to just leave something (apart from maintain). Something I still need to learn.

Cannot agree more Mike,

The 3rd tree in your original post, it evokes a feeling that it could have been your avatar tree before it lost the upper portion of the tree where the energy has redirected its course.

For me, neglect, provided one is keeping the tree healthy throughout this period, is time well spent.

Great thread, makes us think.

Cheers

This tree is not Japanese and I'm not even sure what it is but it's one of the finest deciduous trees in existence in my opinion. I don't know where to look first. Everything about it is fantastic. The asymmetry, the branch distribution, the base the ramification. Just mouth watering. The pot is totally wrong though. This tree deserves a beautiful shallow formal and rectangular Japanese pot to really set it off. I wish I had a better picture.
