Pine, Pinus sylvestris, collected 2012

Here's my latest catch, a Pinus sylvestris, collected 2 days ago. It has an unusual shape, like a single trunk raft. First 25 cm of trunk lies down before a 90 degree bend as it shoots straight up for 25 cm where it splits 2 ways in a classic frog-leg manner.
It is potted in original soil and kitty litter, now it will be left alone for a few years to regain strength (if it survives) before any more work is done.

  1. Så spännande att ha fått börja yamadorisäsongen! Det blir att välja ena eller andra grodbenet då, om båda sidorna klarar sig? Här ligger fortfarande snö, men vi har planerat yamadori till den 12e maj, hoppas det går då.
