Dax,

great work as usual. Nice to see an new Korean pine WB and I love the Hagoromo. There was one with that 'dwarf' quality at the ACS national meeting auction in 08. Went for way beyond my budget.

It takes a ton of time but it's worth it. I appreciate everyone else's time also. That Korean pine is a dandy.

Yes, thanks for bringing us along. He sure has a lot packed in there. Everything is probably buried under snow this morning. Glad you made the trip when you did!

Basically, I came home with (3) pieces!!!!!!!!!! That was the limit and I needed to repect his wishes. I don't know if it was growing from a cultivar of Pinus koraiensis or just a seedling. Rich was driving me around in his car and I had to run to keep up with him. He said (3) pieces and that's how it was. (probably 200 scions available ):

He calls it 'Inner Piece' because it was growing right dead middle on the tree. 'Piece' being the part in the middle. Lucky find! At leat he found it.
