Informal Upright of Japanese Black Pine 2003

This Japanese black pine was bought as part of a private collection in 2003. It was taken to Hiro in 2008 for critique and I expressed my discontent with the swelling midway through the trunk. The suggestion was to make two trees: graft roots to the top half and once that’s taken , saw it off.

Well, after some thought on how hard it is technically to execute, it was decided to work on the tree as it is.

One major design issue became apparent after the needles were thinned out, the branch angles coming off the trunk were not downward enough. so before any more work took place, the branches were undercut halfway through 2-3 times then pulled down with wires.

Once they were done, the majority of branches were wired into positions. i only wanted to set the branch structures correctly at the moment. fine wiring will happen when all the smaller inner buds become mature.

  1. Height: 86cm
  2. Width: 73cm

A couple more issues with the tree:

  1. The first branch splits into 2 branches that turned sharply to the front and to the back, a result of incorrect pruning long time ago.
  2. The second left branch and the back branch are bar branches. in the next styling, they will be positioned so that they appear on the different level.

Both problems will be address next time.
