shohin black pine work
« on: November 12, 2011, 12:57 AM »
it came into my care about 4 years ago.  it was weak.  we repotted it.  changed soil. feed it.   and it is healthy now. 
it was decandled in July.   new needle come our nicely.  we are happy to see that.  so now it is time for fall work.  and rewire.  the change is minor but necessary. 
wiring is not just for styling but also help to get more light into the interior weaker buds.

I understand that this is not a finished styling, but do you have any plans for lowering the first left branch?

Scott,
Thanks,  i will keep updating when we do more work.

Wayne,
yes, we plan on lowering both side actually. 
you are correct.  the left side will be lower a bit more than the right side.
we will do a little more bending in spring.  we have some frosty night here.  frost can be dangerous for the tree that get heavy bending.  thanks,

Now there's a nugget worth remembering.  Thanks for following up.
