I would like to share the picture I made this afternoon of my small 35cm/14inch Pinus sylvestris, that I found and collected In Austria in May 2004. Well, that I found, is not completely true! My wife actually drew my intention to this tree first! We were taking a well deserved rest after a long climb up one of the many beautiful mountains surrounding the cabin were we stayed that week. And wile my wife was enjoying the magnificent views, I took the opportunity to get rid off some excess water that I had drunk so much of along the long way up to this top (if you know what I mean?) So I was just taking the required position, when my wife said to me “you might want to lift your left foot” ?! I looked down, to discover that I was standing on a small Pine, that I had not knottiest, because of the knee high grass it grew in. So now you know why this tree is called “PEE PINE”!
I collected the tree with out any problem, took it home with me, and it has been growing well ever since. For such a small tree it has wonderful old bark and a beautiful “Shari” running along most off its trunk. Off course, this tree needs more years, so the branches can mature and to reduce the needle size, bud I am already pretty pleased with the image this small tree suggests. I hope you like it?

Very nice pine. There's nothing quite like a nice collected pine.

I'm working on my first pine right now, and it's a Scots. There is a wealth of information available for JBP and JWP, but not a lot of written info on Scots. Do you have any Scots-specific techniques, or can they be worked like a JBP (reportting, candle work, etc)?

Thanks
