Hello everyone,

I am entering 14 seedlings (10 Jeffrey pines, and 4 Canary Island pines) I planted back in February 14, 2021.
Below is the link of my previous post:

Photos are from this past weekend. I plan on repotting them during the week, and will update/post photos again once they are repotted.

Very excited to see if all will make it by December 31, 2029 (and beyond?)

Darn it! I forgot to take photos of the 4 canary-island pines when I did the repot. I will post for record-keeping when I get home.

Update on the repotting of these guys.
So far, all 4 of the Canary-Island Pines are staying strong.
The Jeffrey Pine cluster is staying strong as well. I'm tempted to break up that particular group... but maybe later down the road.

Very cool. I do love pine forests in nature and wonder why we don't see more bonsai pine forests in the U.S.
 
Very cool material! Looking forward to seeing them styled in the future!

I've noticed, in general, the new construction of coniferous forests is in short supply.

It may have to do with the time and intent it takes to develop each conifer with realistic taper... Like I noticed that in a great deal of, even famous Hon Non Bo.. LESS attention is paid to the development of the trees inhabiting the planting..

Or... Maybe it's hard to WORK on a bonsai forest, that never loses it's foliage.
