this is a japanese black pine that i have grow since 2003 purchased as a little seedling. the movement in the trunkline was wired in 2005. it was then just being pruned back regularly to maintain the shape and sustainability of the low branches.
today i dedided to work on it to take it to the next phase of its existence.
it now measures 32cm to the very tip of the needle of the new apex. i plan to have the total height reduced to below 30cm in the next 2-3 years.
