Hello Everyone,
This is my first post so I hope I'm doing this in the correct place. I just acquired an eastern white pine, not ideal for bonsai I know, but it was a healthy looking tree with a good trunk and nice nebari, and it was really cheap.

If you send more pics of the trunk or more angles we could have an idea of what you have to work with ;)

I think that would make a nice literati stile , I like the angle it comes up at , I think it's good material but wait for the more experienced member they will probs tell you otherwise hehehe
