A new task that I have been given is to lower some of the foliage pads on this Japanese Black Pine Tree (Pinus Thunbergii). When trees are really old, their branches are huge and heavy, and so they tend to sag downward. By lowering a few different branches, we can make this tree look a bit older and hopefully more refined. Hopefully I can finish up this project by the end of the week! (This tree was a gift of Janet Lanman in the year 2010, and has been in training since 1980).
