European spruce #64 part 1

European spruce, Picea abies, collected in Italy and Austria. This kind of material can be found in areas where the creek comes once in a century and devastates evrything, leaving lots and lots of gravel. New trees grow in the gravel, but they find it hard to survive and develop strong character with excellent taper, lots of branches and very good bark. They don't like to be colleted at all though, unfortunately. These made it, fortunately.
