Mugo pine #55

Mugo pine, Pinus mugo, collected in italy in 2010. After I acquired this tree I found that I had made a mistake. It was somehow awkward material and I put a sales tag on it. Nobody took it though. Now, together with Patrick we potted the horizontal trunk as a cascade and it starts to look promising. The big fat trubk on the left is dead and will be carved; 80 % or more will be removed, as the virtuals show. I took the sales tag off.
The tree can be finally styled in summer of 2015 if it looks happy then. The final styling is not a big deal, just a lot of work.

It looks stunning now and once you have removed the rest of the material it will look wonderful.

Just a magical transformation, and well done.
