Japanese white pines are known as feminine pines. This is as they have softer needles than all the other pines and this makes them very easy to work on. This is a smaller tree than some of the other pines available but the tree is very powerful. This is as a result of the very tapered trunk which begins, at ground level, as a very thick trunk and quickly tapers off into the apex.
This tree is quite dense with plenty of branches and healthy needle foliage. These branches are currently a little wild as the tree has perhaps been allowed to grow freely for a stretch, but it is now ready to be wired and the finer structure imprinted onto the tree, by the new owner.
The needles of this white pine are very short and are perfectly to scale for the size of tree. White pines are not cultivated in the same manner as two needle pines, such as the red and black pines. In fact I would say they are even less work.
Potted in an economy quality, unglazed ceramic container, this tree could benefit from a repot in a season or two at the most.
