TOPIC: Long term literati pine project

Long term literati pine project 3 months 4 weeks ago #40425

2 years ago I collected few pines and most of them I have shared here already.
Except this one.
All because the styling is taking a few years.

This is how it looked after collection



1 and a half yer later I got to do the first stylng
As it was gonna be a hard one, I made sure the tree is well protected and wired with strong enough wires...and enough wires



Even though I was very carefull, the trunk suddenly cracked at one place and I thought that the tree won´t make it.
But it did and new needles proved that i is OK and healing.
So another - slighter - step was taken few weeks ago.
This is how it looks now.



This is still not the end, but we´re slowly getting there.
Wires and bandages will stay on for another 2 years I guess to make sure the shape will be set for good.

It turned out this wasn´t gonna be a long term project.
After it survived first styling I should have left it alone for much longer than I did and not do another styling just yet.
Why?
Because it was too much and the tree is dead now.
Congratulations Mimo.
You f....d up again.
