Hello everyone, new to the forums here but so far it looks like the place to be. I'm really just getting started in bonsai. I have always been interested but I have never really jumped in as I was busy gardening and landscaping. Then I developed a pretty nasty health issue and I was forced to quit working. Since I could no longer do any full scale gardening, I got into bonsai to satisfy my green thumb. Last summer I ordered a bunch of tree seeds and along with seeds I collected in the wild I started my bonsai collection. So my "bonsai" collection is pretty much one year old seedlings. I did start a bunch of loblolly pines, which grow all over S.E. Oklahoma where I grew up at. So I have plans on doing a forest planting of loblolly pines in the style of the Kiamichi Mountains. I was just wondering if anyone else has any experience growing loblolly pines as bonsai trees.
