This is a One Of A Kind Japanese Black Pine 'Mikawa Seed'
The 'Mikawa' is a favorite among bonsai lovers. It has soft needles and aged looking bark. This tree was just styled and is slated to be moved to a nice ceramic pot in the spring - unless, of course it sell online. I'm not sure if John Romano or Pete Olson worked on this one - but it's gorgeous. This tree is going to look sharp in a ceramic pot.

Wiring is best done in autumn or early winter, so that the branches can become accustomed to their new position while the tree is dormant. Wiring done at other times must be watched carefully for signs of wire cutting into the bark, and must be removed immediately if this happens. If necessary, the tree can be re-wired after removing the old wire.
Repotting is best done in spring. Junipers can also be repotted in autumn if necessary, since they enter a period of renewed root growth at that time. Extensive root pruning in autumn is probably not a good idea, however. Pines and other conifers grow in association with a symbiotic fungus which grows in the root ball of the tree. If this fungus is not present, the tree may die. For this reason, pines and other conifers should never be bare-rooted.
