The saga of Scots pine nr. 5, #6

This is a Scots pine, Pinus sylvestris, which was collected in Austria in 2005. It found it's way into my garden in spring of 2007. As one can see it looked quite promising. As with most Scots pines the nebari did not look so good. Well it was buried under the gravel.I decided to unbury it and repot the tree right away. A great nebari appeared. The tree looks a lot better already in the round pot. In October of 2007 the old needles were plucked and it looks better again. Now the pine needs another vegetation period to stabilize in the new pot before serious styling can begin.
