Very nice pine!  View 4 gets my vote, too. I'm not crazy about the pot.

I don't like it being off center in a "round" pot.

Very nice trunk, you should be able to look up Julian Adams and find out some info on the Scots.

Hi
 again. nice tree. Pic 4 and pic 3 on the second set is your front in my opinion. best nebari, movement, interest and lean of the trunk.
 A small amount of carving on the chop would enhance the tree. You can carve on the branch stub lower down in a similar way or even connect the 2 with a thin shari.
 If you don't want any deadwood, you can slightly elongate that chop longitudinally, and let it grow wild a couple of years, and it may heal, but why bother? and old pine in the forest is gonna have some war stories, why shouldn't yours?
 If you go to some of the European forums, you will find more info on Scott's pine than you can read in a year. Try bonsai ejit or ireland bonsai society website.

Glad this one popped back up.

Dirk, if you are saying that Scots Pines are as vigorous as JBP in the Netherlands, OK. If you live in a warm place, no. They can grow  fast, but they certainly sulk when treated as harshly as we treat JBP.

John,

That is exactly what I said. It's not as strong as jbp. But comes close.

Dirk.

John (and others)

I must correct my previous reply to John.
Yes, you can decandle scotts pine for balancing it. this means automatically heavy feeding. No, you can't decandle
late summer. In the Netherlands decandling till the end of may can be oke. Once balanced you
don't want to decandle and heavy feed a scots pine. You don't need so much backbudding anymore
and you need the new growth to be elegant and fine.
Scotts pine isn't as strong and vigorous as JBP. Can be decandeld for energy balancing. But not
every year and not in the refining stage.
Treating a refined scots as a white pine would be save.

Dirk. I think you have hit it right on.
