Japanese White Pine Literati



This is the gem of the Japanese White Pine bunch. Trees like this have the potential to be the star of any bonsai exhibition or a collectors private collection.

Japanese white pines of this quality are extremely rare in South Africa. As you can see the tree has been roughly styled in the literati style and has really nice movement to the left. The main branch has lots of interest and has lots of volume.

The tree in general has a lot of growth, which can perhaps be thinned by the new owner, or through wiring technique this growth can be placed in a more defined shape. This will greatly enhance the refinement of this already advanced tree.

The trunk of this Japanese White Pine possess mature, textured bark from the base all the way into the apex. It has just the right amount of movement and taper for the chosen style, literati and the trees movement is balanced nicely with the volume of foliage on the right of the tree.

Currently potted in a plain but aesthetically complimentary ceramic pot from Japan, this tree will benefit from a repot in the near future.

This Japanese White Pine was imported in March of 2016 from the Saitama prefecture in Japan.
