heres another pine that had roots growing through the bottom of the pot
I decided id better dig up and do something with
it has lost a few branches due to being shaded by other trees, lucky they were only sacrifice branches to thicken it up
anyway its gotten very leggy so what can I do with it ????
another candidate for octopus style ?? a tall literati ?? or maybe some serious bending??
tell me what you see, if anything

Can they handle a trunk chop?
Perhaps a better shot of the bottom...

Adam a close up shot of a cleaned up trunk might help, we have the expanded view to get the hole scope of tree now I'd like to see the trunk up close to see what you have.
love the collected,
Watty

G'day Adam,
Sorry mate, didn't see your post until just now... I like the base of the trunk in the first picture!
I don't know much about pines, but I'd be looking to bring the top down close to that base! "It's all about the Base!" Either by a trunk chop or some other means... May be Jon the two smaller one branches..

Cheers
Elmar Z.

I would probably try grafting a shoot onto the heavier trunk and pop it back in the ground.

That suitcase under it isn't gonna last many more trips mate..... :)

as I don't have a literati, bunjin style tree in my collection and having always liked them
I figured this tree was the prime candidate
having never attempted this style I was both hesitant and excited to give it a try
so having a pretty clear idea in mind of what could be achieved with this tree and having spent
most evenings this week googling images of literati pines I decided to give it a go
so after a couple of hours here is the result
feel free to let me know what you think and if anything needs tweaking or changing to improve this tree
regards Adam
