Pinus strobus (Eastern white pine) has always been near and dear to me as a local tree. It's a five needle which makes it unique and everything about its growth habit seems to make it completely unsuitable for bonsai. BUT what if it was used to make a 2.5 to 3 foot tall literati style bonsai?! I betcha that'd make the hard to dwarf needles look small enough. Anyone care to join me/weigh in on my f*** you to everyone discounting this neat tree?
