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.

Don't you think the pot is visually too big for the tree ?

What would you pay for that pine ?
do you have to pepot and trim the roots in the summer on that make
of pine.

cheers,

This pine is invaluable. There is no market for this kind of tree. It took twenty years to make it as is. An old collected tree like this will only be repotted every 15 to 20 years.

Cedric,

the pot is slightly too big, indeed. It is much better than it was in the beginning though. Maybe I find a better one.
