European black pine #15

European black pine, Pinus nigra Austriaca, collected in Croatia in 2009. I have recieved this tree recently. It waas in rather negelcted state, and a bit weak. Threfore I did not do the whole styling at once. The tree would look much better immediately, but there is the danger of some branches dying. So I left it at this and will do the detailed wiring in twelve months. Anyway, it has good potential, I feel. the training pot is fine for the moment. In a year I might put it into the final pot though without disturbing the roots.
