Japanese white pine, Pinus pentaphylla, pot by John Pitt. The lower left branch was very important for the design. It was alread wek last Augst. Unfortuabntely it died and the branch inside the curve on the upper right too. This happes with Japanese white pines unfortunately. Anyway, the desater was not so bad after all. i have tried to rescue the situation and the tree looks different but not much worse than before. The last image is a virtual showing the new front in the same pot with a little shift of the tree to the left.
