Scots pine #2

This Scots pine (Pinus Sylvestris) was collected a couple of weeks after the first Scots pine.

This was located on the side of a rock and again the roots were all on the surface of the rock, making it easier to collect. Bringing along as many roots as possible, not forgetting the Mycorrhizal fungi, helps to make the survival rate of pine trees higher.

The photos below show the sort of location that these potensai can be found. Places exposed to the weather where the wind can blow strongly and the tree is attached by only a little soil are ideal conditions for nature to make the sort of tree bonsai enthusiasts are interest in.
