The other elegant mugo pine - part 1

This is a mugo pine, Pinus mugo, which was collected in 1985 by Serge Clemence in Switzerland. it found it's way into my garden in 1996. Right from the beginning it was clear tht this tree had a grand future. But it took much longer than I thought. Well, with such trees it is wise to take your time and only work step by step, always watching what the tree has to tell you. Anyway, the tree told me that now, in June 2007 was the time ror final styling.

Here the hsitory

1) the mugo in 1996 as I got it. This tree is way over 100 years old, probably over 200.
