Japanese White Pines

13th January 2010 • ArchivePrevious PostNext Post

Keith from Vancouver, who regularly sends over fascinating pictures from his travels to Japan, sent this one recently, of his father-in-law at work* on white pines (goyoumatsu). Look at all the bamboo poles used as splints in each tree, training the branches down.

* Actually Keith has now told me that father-in-law is just posing!

There's a Sciadopitys verticallata (koyomaki) on the right.
