The first yamadori pt1

Three years ago i went on my first yamadori hunt,to a bog in wales where the pines are under water for parts of the winter,and came back with this pine and a nice rootball as well.This is where it all really began for me,i was hooked.I had got no real satisfaction from numerous nursery trawl's this was the real deal,tree's with old bark,not fantastic but good enough.this pine thrived from day one,and had it's first proper styling last year,there were many options,but it ended up very different from the tree i enviseged on the side of a welsh bog 3 yrs ago.

it has been repotted this year and a pic of it now will follow soon.

The lowest branch is being used to fatten up the base a little.

Why not use that lowest branch for a second trunk?
