Ponderosa pine #3

Ponderosa pine, Pinus ponderosa, collected in Colorado in 2000, first image of 2001. After serious growth problems two years ago the pine appears quite vigorous again.

Would you still prepare the dead wood the same (smooth, almost sanded)or have you changed your approach to dead wood on pines. Some prefer to only break the jins w plyers and not to sand them.

thank you

If one has time that's what you do. Now, after more than 12 years it is not smooth anymore. It is covered with cracks and looks very authentic.
