Entry for Noeladers Trophy from Croatia

This is a pistacia, Pistacia lentiscus. It was collected only three !!! years ago by Marija and Andrija from Kastela/Split, Croatia. They have done a great job to get this tree to this level in record time. I am very happy for them to have gotten this tree accepted for this year's show.

Yessss!!! This is already the ultimate victory!!!
Thumbs up for AniMa!
I'm so proud with you Andrija and Marija, and with you Walter...this is of course your victory too. Because, I consider today's Croatian bonsai as your project. And this is already a statement to all those who were in doubt...no matter of final ranking of this tree, just entering the exibition and developement in three years under Pall's supervision...that's already a record breaker...
I'm so proud! We'll be there to support you. See you at Noelanders

That is one amazing Pistacio tree. We can sometimes collect them from old orchards here in California, but they never have the wild look that that tree has.
