Collected many years ago on Vancouver island. This is a very old tree. 500 years old easily. 78 inches tall. Trunk diameter is 11inches across. 95% of the styling and other work is complete, there still remains some carving on the back side of the tree which could one day serve as an alternative "front" to the existing one pictured.
An old Scots Pine in need of some love. Extensive wiring will be carried out over the next few weeks. Eventually it will find a home in a shallow oval shaped pot, this one is simply too overpowering. Tree is 32 inches tall, approx 60 years old.
