Scots pine #20 and #21

Two new Scots pines, Pinus sylvestris, collected in spring of 2010. they are healthy, but certainly not yet ready for styling. Now they will wait for at least one or two years before we will touch them. They will both become part of the collection.

The needles are so small they almost look like spruce! The bark is different though too. Awesome trees!

If they are healthy, why would you wait to start styling?

Healthy means that they live and they will not die. They have survived the trauma of being collected. A tree has to wait two to five, sometimes ten yers afterwards to be ready fir styling, which is the next trauma. Every year thousands of trees are being killed because folks cannot wait.
