White Pine: Revisited

This white pine might be familiar to some… it was featured in a post from April 2, 2010. On that day I styled the tree by turning the front 180 degrees… with my client’s approval!

See the original post: https://crataegus.com/2010/04/02/white-pine-styling/

Some of the bottom branches appear to be strengthening, and that was good to see. I shifted the front slightly to the left on this second pass. It grew strongly this past year, and the second photo shows it after a recent retouch. I only get to see it once a year or so. My client has done a wonderful job caring for this tree, don’t you think?

Initial styling in spring 2010.

After a year of growth and some adjustments. Pot is next... this one might be best in a fairly simple pot, like a round, as the roots are so visually active.

    Just a lovely pine and even better with the new growth and front.
    Is the wire in the hole down low on the pot an anchoring technique? Haven’t seen that before.

    This is a very disturbing design. I keep coming back to view it, again and again. On the simplest level this design is an answer to my hobbyist question of what I could do with my pine that has a stubby, uniteresting trunk. But it has had a far greater affect on me and than that. Thank you.

    Hey Michael, does this one have a new pot yet? Great tree! And great work as always!
