new Scots pine again

This one I got in a trade. It was collected in Scandinavia. this has great potential. I look forward to styling this one. Probably I can start in July of 2010.

Walter,
This scandinavian yamadori scots pine - will it undergo the same treatment and styling techniques as your yamadori mugo pines from the alps?
Thanks,
//Ken

Ken,

the techniques will be exactly the same. The form will be very different. I have never seen a mugo pine coming close to this. This Scots pine will be very elegant. I think that many if not most mugos want to become powerful masculine bonsai. Scots pines very often are also styled in that manner because it is mainstream taste; at least in Europe. But I think Scots pines usually have much more talent for and elegant tree. This on will be elegant, I am certain.
