Yesterday I was in Umeå with the bonsai society. I had brought this straight pine to the meeting, but never really got time to work with it. The only thing I did was to cut off one branch - leaving a stump to make a jin.
Then I wired the tree when I came home, cut off two more branches, and jinned the top!
The cut-off branch left the tree a bit thin on the right side.
Which I think will be balanced in the next season!
