Mugo pine #7

Mugo pine, Pinus mugo, collected in 1995 in Switzerland. Last image as of 1998, when I got it. Walter plucked all the old needles, cleaened and edited the deadwood. Then he wired the tree for a whole week. Now it looks fine again. In three years the wire will go off and the tree will be exhibited.
