So this is my second line I am working on. I managed to pick this up at a good price, initially as a garden tree. My intentions started for it to go in the front garden with several other pines.
However following giving it a clean out of dead needles on a mass of branches, that has also caused some ugly balls throughout the trunk.
I started to like the trunk line and started to see some potential, thinking was literati style.
Giving its a Scots Pine I thought it was also a good tree to learn on.
This has lead me onto doing some, initial wiring and removal of around 40% to 50% of the branches. I am now leaving the tree to grow out and adjust for at least the next season.
Any advice would be welcome regarding the initial structure addressing the spots of reverse taper and further removal of branches. The chop stick shows the front I was thinking of before the wiring but now I am unsure.
The tree is roughly 3 to 3.5foot not including the pot.
Some future plans I am think of now also include possible looking at attempting some bends in the trunk. To enhance the slight bends already there.
We are just going into our last month of Autumn here in the UK. So escuse the wet pictures.
