Big pine for my garden

In Laos Garden

I always wanted to have a big pine for my garden. One that was special, characteristic and different from any other bonsai. My mind was always set on having a bunjin, as they are unique and difficult to style.

This past spring, I found a very interesting tree at Laos Garden. Marcio who works there, told me that he repotted it one year ago and repositioned the tree in fresh new soil. This was my tree!

Careful cultivation during the whole growing season made the tree healthy along with needles of equal length. A tree with even growth is always the best condition for styling and wiring.

First I spent almost a whole day cleaning and equilibrating the amount of needles. The second day I spent designing the tree using a minimal amount of wire, listening to the tree and where it was telling me to place and slightly adjust the branches. I would like that the tree will have a naturalistic style with a wild aspect, while still looking like a bonsai.

I hope I have achieved the image of the tree that I had in my head.

I moved the tree to change the angle just lifting it up but without repotting it
