I got this tree from someone who collected it from the mountains of Black Hills in S. Dakota in 2009. Here is the tree when I got it:



To give it more age and a more dramatic look, I focused on the smaller trunk and decided to jin the larger trunk.



There is still a lot of branch refinement before it looks more like a tree in nature. Here is the close-up of the jin:

Very light torching to highlight the wood grain with dark burns. Lime sulpher was applied later with a drop of black ink.

This tree has atleast another 3 years of refinement left before I will consider it showing.
