Here's one of the trees that maybe I should not have collected that I mentioned in another thread some time ago. I collected it two years ago (I think it's my second collected tree) because I wanted a shohin literati. I thought the bark was good for such a small tree, but I have changed my mind about that. Sure, the bark isn't as bad as it could be but it definetly isn't great. It suffered from needle cast when I collected it, I didn't even know what that was back then, but it's getting better and it has grown pretty well this season. I really hope that the lowest branch will survive, but I think it's doomed. The pic shows what I plan to keep, I might post a virt later.
