Today I came across a timeless Japanese White Pine tree in training since 1625. Yes, that’s right since 1625, I googled immediately to get more information about this remarkable tree. I found this tree while shooting a fabulous couple at the US National Arboretum in Washington, DC.
This tree was donated by a bonsai master, Masaru Yamaki of Hiroshima in 1976 as is a part of Japan’s bicentennial gift to the US. According to the National Bonsai and Penjing Museum, this tree is about 375 years old.
I just want to share this with everyone. Research the Art of Tree Training.
