Nice trunk movement.
If it goes well in your climate, you can prune it heavily after flowering. Remember they are not apical dominant, so be careful if hard pruning the top

Almost or exactly ran out of time, so that was the first thing after the photo, but not that heavily... ;) Established, or not, it needed. I don’t expect too much flower for the next year, but it’s not even a bad thing.

Hello!, I got mine after 14 days of transport and several calls to a paid telefone number to find out where was my tree. :angry: They said that DHL managed to re-arrange the transport with spanish Correos service, but picking the cheapest service of all... That means no less than 8 days, and no compromise on delivery date for your package. Being this a living tree, imagine what's my opinion for this purchase.

Im thinking about opening a dispute in PayPal, as this is a conifer and you don't really know if the tree is already dead after a while. This package has been in delivery status thus in some kind of store facility from 10th July, in Spain we are at 40º last two weeks and normally in those places is hotter.

Aparently the tree is ok, the foliage feeling is like plastic, but no signs of yellow needles. The soil was protected with sphagnum moss although it was dry... don't know what to do.

Rubs, it looks fine so far. Pines are drought resistant up to a point. But as you know it can die and still be green, just wait and don't overwater it.

Adding bad news to this sad history, just look at the picture.

It seems that the tree has been upside down for a looong period that the bottom of the soil is now in the middle of the pot. They packed the box but forgot to put "this side up", so what happen? the tree had bad luck and they put it upside down so the soil while it was wet was compacted agains the plastic film and sphagnum moss from the top of the pot, gravity did it's thing and when the soil lost moist the roots and the soil got stuck at the middle of the pot.

So upset my friends, a long chain of disgraces for the same little tree.

Rubs, what they told to you about all of this when you contacted them?

I know in my cases, the boxes didn’t needed any “This side up” label, hence the plants and their soil are secured even if stay flipped for long period. Those trees made a long road from Japan. Correos need to try harder if they want them dead..
