Japanese White Pine #6

Japanese white pine, Pinus parviflora, collected in Japan and styled a long time ago. It will be great fun to refurbish the tree.

Nebari is suboptimal. In other words: not worth an effort.

Anonymous must have some pretty fantastic trees if he can dismiss this tree so quickly. It has tremendous potential and I look forward to seeing you transform it into something special.

I'm sorry, I meant the White Pine #5. I must have had both tabs open and mistakenly clicked on the #6 to comment.
To be clear: nebari on #6 is OK, but on #5 it's suboptimal.

Suboptimal doesn't mean "not worth the effort". If you only worked on collected trees with "optimal" nebari, you would have zero collected trees.
