Black pine of my lifetime

This is an Austrian black pine, Pinus nigra Austraica, collected in Austria in 2006. There are not many of these in Austria despite the name. This is the best black pine material that I have ever seen and I am very happy that it found it's way into my garden. I don't think that I will ever get a better one. I will start to work on the deadwood very soon, before the snow comes. Reports will follow.
