Japanese White Pine. Imported. Since this is a relatively new import ( 2016) we have not continued the wire training, or done any pruning this year. The best approach for the first year or two is to let the tree become strongly rooted into the pot. When they come bare rooted, it can take them months or years to settle in.
The good news is once rooted in and well maintained the White Pines ( also known as Japanese Five Needle Pines) will continue to improve and be one of your most prized bonsai.
We hand pick each and every one from top growers in Japan who train for decades before they even consider selling them to us. They graft, wire, scar, prune, pinch and more. All the while making sure the trees are in the peak of health. We know, it sounds like a contradiction, but this is the balance of bonsai. The perfect interplay of health and styling. So should you get one of these beautiful white pines, from us or anywhere else, keep the tradition alive by going slowly and mindfully. You will be glad you did.
This one is in a 10" pot. 2" trunk. 18" tall. It has very nice taper at the trunk base.
