Mauro workshop pine

Postby treeman » July 2nd, 2015, 1:46 pm

Pinus sylvestris ''Watereri''

The result after a workshop. Apart from not being very happy with the way he arranged the crown (bent a branch over and squashed it down to use the small side branches to form the apex), overall pretty good.
I changed the apex to my liking by bringing it back up where it should be. (IMO)
I think the future will see the right branch shortened?

Like the movement, do you have a before picture by any chance? Looks like a Jin in the back, assume this was a taller tree which was shortened.

Can only get better with age :tu:

As always, awesome stock Mike! The movement in the trunk suggests that you grew this yourself :?:

This little phatty has rather small needles and looks great in the classic style.

What's its history?

Usual thing, grafted in about 2010, in the ground 7 years, in the pot 3. One trunk reduction about 4 years ago when still in the ground.
My plan for this is a simple ''miyajima'' style.

I never was happy with this tree so I changed it completely. Back is now the front and the two main branches cut off. More will come off in the future I think. But for now it can rest.
I'm much happier with it's future potential now.

Big improvement Mike. Love the new trunk line.

Shows that it’s better to take the plunge and sacrifice a few years of growth to get a better result.

Mate, I wish I had your skills!

Massive improvement. The plan seems viable and I look forward to seeing it come to fruition.

I’m not one for sticking strictly to rules, but the removal of the low branches places the first branch up a third of the trunk which it didn’t have before. Your plan also feels more “natural” in terms of simplicity and flow.

Thanks Daluke. I never think about 3rd of the way up and that sort of thing anymore. I just go with what's there and what ''could'' be there later on. Pretty sure trees have never heard of that rule either... I have found it's really important to not be fixed on what the tree looks like after working on it as long as you are confident about how it will develop later on.
