Black Pine Transformation

Re-Styling an old Japanese Black Pine

This old black pine has been styled over the past 35 years in the 'Wind swept' style; and many would say, including myself, unsuccessfully. !!

Last year I decided to transform this bonsai into a 'Cascade' style.  This meant some drastic pruning and heavy reshaping of old branches.

The re-styling has seen a greater focus on the nebari and trunk size, relative to the overall, reduced, size of the composition.

It still as some way to go to bring it to a reasonable level of refinement.  The next few years will see a better ramification and the resultant reduction in needle size.

A smaller pot will further enhance the relative size of the nabari and lower trunk.
