Please let me introduce my self, my name is david lim from jakarta,indonesia.
I’m a big fan of your work, i learn alot from your blog and website about black pine.
Recently i bought a pine from japan.
The nursery label the tree as japanese black pine, but i’m a little suspicious with the tree, i think its a red pine not a black pine.
Can you help me identify the trees?
I attach 2 photo of pine trees i bought.
And can you please advice me with the trees.
Thank you very much jonas.
update: i attach the closeup photo before the buds emerge.
