Recently, one of the longtime residents at our nursery was gently lifted into the back of a truck for a slow and careful trek to an oceanside home on Long Island, NY. Here, our tree will be planted in a very large pot and placed on a deck overlooking the ocean–the perfect spot for this striking specimen that can trace its origins to the rugged coastlines of the Japanese islands.

We look forward to hearing of the delight this unique Pine will bring to its owners and their loved ones, as it begins to display the venerable character of its nature and its nurture.

Gladly reported by Betty Hanselman.
