Kuromatsu, Japanese Black Pine, Pinus Thunbergii
Item description - YO41010015
The Japanese black pine or Pinus Thunbergii, Kuromatsu (黒松) in Japanese, belongs to the Pinaceae family. The tree grows naturally around the coastal areas of Kyūshū, Shikoku, Honshū and South Korea where it can become more that 40 meters tall. On the other hand, the maximum height is decreased when the tree is a part of a garden. Additionally, the lifespan of the tree can easily be hundreds of years and it has to planted in a sunny spot for optimal growth.
The Japanese black pine is often cloud pruned according to traditional Niwaki principles. The trunk and branches are bended using certain techniques. This is very similar to Bonsai, but on a larger scale. Both require decades of dedication.
