Pine Bonsai

Updated on September 9, 2010

You can find a diversity of Bonsai trees, from the ones suited for your backyard, to the ones specially designed for experts. If you are interested in Bonsai trees, first you need to understand what you should learn about them, their types and varieties, all taken step by step.

Learning more about the wide variety of pine bonsai is really worthy. Next to nothing, yet enormous needles create the pine bonsai, which can grow in groups of 2 to 5 trees and they can be found in more than 150 different types, including evergreen and shrubs. In Japan they can be admired in yards as bonsai trees or in the famous Japanese gardens as shrubs.

Only the initiated ones in the secrets of bonsai trees know how to care for them, as it can prove difficult to prune and they have their own progress patterns which may seem strange. Although the pine bonsai tree is quite demanding to design and to be given the shape of a classical bonsai, it is not impossible. If you have set your mind into growing a pine bonsai tree in your own garden, then you should consider having a permanent expert taking care of it continuously. 

Types Of Pines Trees

Some different types of such bonsai trees can be found close to the world, uncovered. The pine tree in the mountains has its origins in the aloe vera, which is why they present the big needles. They spread from central Europe and got very adaptable to all types of climate difficulties, from cold, snowy areas to dry, hot deserts.

All over Japan you can encounter the Japanese black pine, originating from this country. They can develop in barren soils and bad climate conditions and are thought to be the staple for the bonsai reputation of Japan.

In northern Europe grows the scotch pine. When it reaches five years, it starts to reduce the branches and needles. Often, the needles get twisted and have a green, yellowish colour. As they grow old, the bark gets a rusty red colour and turns flaky.

Another Japan originating pine tree is the Japanese white, a vigorous tree. In order to get the black pine’s progress, experts graft sometimes the white bonsai onto its lower branches with branches from the black pine bonsai. The needles look and feel much more like leaves, with a white colour on the outside and a blue shade to the other side of the leaf.
