One of the items at this auction I'm considering bidding on! PXL_20210612_153930357.jpgPXL_20210612_153934340.jpg
Unfortunately realized too late that I didn't get a great shot of the trunk or nebari

Or the price! 😜

I think a more important picture is the buds, that's the best clue as to what health has been and will be.

I dig this one, but only if the buds are juicy.

That pretty G if it's healthy. Of course, you have to land in this "ok with ponderosa needle size" category. Though I think we'll end up finding a way to reduce them better. And there's always grafting.

I'd be in a balance of bud health vs. budget that could get me into around $200. But I'm broke. I think $600 is reasonable for someone with a vision.

Are you seeing the bids to beat them, or is it a one shot?

Dang ok I'm glad that I wasn't totally off base when I thought that could go for something. It ended up going for $270. I'm also cheap and that was a bit rich for my blood.
