The molding of the black pine

This small black pine passes for about 40 years.
Height about 5m(16ft). Width 2m(6.5ft).

It is the black pine of the personal house generally.

The black pine is fixed with a bamboo prop so that beautiful form can be regulated well.

Branches must be always pruned.

The sunlight is the thing which is the most important for black pines.


  1. i love pine trees. i have a pinus pinea in my garden. we have it pruned from time to time but not so beautifully. there are black pines along the road by the river/sea i take everyday to go to work. we also call them maritime pines.

  2. Que curiosas las ramas del arbol, muy sorprendentes, me gustan mucho.

    Bonito luagares.


  3. Ruma, me parece una fotografía muy bella.

  4. I really enjoy pines as well..the smell,and many a silhouette through branches. Interesting..forty years too but I didn't think of the form. We have many wild ones here.
    Hope you have a wonderful day! I'm heading out into a beautiful clear one today and hopefully I'll take something interesting? Regina-
