A few shots of this promising bit of material airlayered from a parent tree two years ago. It’s been recovering from its first rootprune and repot earlier in the year. No new shoots this year so I’m leaving it to bounce back and next year I’ll consider pruning and styling.
Took the cutters to this pine yesterday. Sacrifice branch at the bottom left on to help thicken the lower trunk.
It’ll go into a ceramic pot in spring.
