mugo #8 light at the end of the tunnel

This is one of the best trees that I ever found. I spotted it in summer of 2001 and came back in spring of 2002 to collect it. It was not so easy to get it back to the car. The whole thing looked so chaotic that my assistant at that point in time mentioned that he would not have collected this crap. Well, I said that this would become one of the best pines around. It took quite a while and some imagination. I had the vision right away and now, eight years later it is visible that it will come true. The last image is a virtual: new front, new pot, crown slightly edited. but this should be possible within the next two years. The whole tree, Pinus mugo, is 70 cm high, around 150 years old.
