Scots pine literati material

This Scots opine, Pinus sylvestris, was collected in Scandinavia in May 2009. This is my souvenir from the BFF Summer Meeting 2010. I could not wait and had to bend it into a reasonable position right away. The bents are exaggerated purposely. After two years the guy wires will go off and the tree will snap back a bit and look good.

i think many people would have passed this tree off as (and the mugo) as unworkable , but what you have done in single session has transformed it ,
i would like to see it the progression of these two trees
