I have started several bristle cone pines for my bonsai collection. i understand that these trees the
start of a 5000 year project, I have three that are about 20 years old and three that are 4 years old
soon to be planted about 20 seeds. The 4 year old trees and the seeds are all because of Mr. Lanner
and his book.
The book contains far more information than I expected, along with humor and interesting facts. There are also a number of unresolved problems mentioned and hints for interesting additional observations.
I bought this book in planning a photo-trip to White Mountain. The book has generated a number of ideas for photographs beyond the standard (and lovely) well known Bristlecone photographs.
In short, I learned a lot, had fun in the process, and have a number of new ideas for possibly interesting photographs.
