Japanese White Pine #1

This tree somehow found it's way into my garden:

Japanese White Pine, Pinus pentaphylla, around 50 years old, 70 cm high, pot: Tokaoname, imported from Japan in 2001, maintained by Mauro Stemberger, maintained by WP since September 2009

I guess one Japanese white pine and one VERY Japanese tree is fine in my collection.
It took two days to pluck all needles and to clean the trunk and surface.

First image two weeks ago in Mauro's garden. Then tow days ago and finally today and it sits on the place where the larch with the ax set.
