Description

The European Mountain Pine (Pinus mugo) is an increasingly familiar species to see used in European bonsai.

Very commonly we see excellent yamadori although this example actually originates from horticultural nursery stock probably via a garden centre. This tree has had some bonsai shaping done on it a while ago and might be said to be ready for some refinement. The trunk exhibits really nice movement and taper.  There are plenty of branches in more or less the correct places to create a good image. It is nice and healthy and will make a nice compact pine bonsai. It is chuhin in size category at 28cm. in height although it might just about make it into the shohin category , it has an overall spread of 28cm. The root buttressing is 8cm. across at soil level and above that the trunk diam. is 5cm. The plastic rectangular bonsai pot measures 25x18x7cm.
