Pistacia terebinthus (Cyprus turpentine)

Pistacia terebinthus, known commonly as terebinth and turpentine tree, is a species of Pistacia, native to the Mediterranean region.The Cyprus turpentine develops like a tree. They tend to develop like erect small trees. Cyprus turpentine isn't an evergreen; during the winter it assumes a green colouring; the adult species are medium in size and reach 2 m in height.
I do believe that this is a rare species for Bonsai. After a Google search I could only find some pencil size bonsai of this species.

The one shown on the photos below collected two months ago.
Immediately after collection covered with a plastic nylon bag in order to keep sufficient levels of moisture. this has a result just after a few days of collection a new growth to appear.
The nylon bag removed just a few days ago because i noticed some burning to some of the new growth, probably due to the high temperatures we had last week (37-38 celcius)
This my first atempt with this species.the tree planted with this angle to maximize the survival rate. I will probably rotate the tree by 45 degrees by next repotting.

Any comments are more than welcome.

The same thread / topic appears as well to the European native bonsai forum ,

fingers crossed....i hope that it will make it through the summer, and hopefully in a couple of years you will have to start thinking about styling

why rotating?? you may style it as a raft as well, with 3 trunks

Iam almost sure that it will be ok.
I don't like the raft style for this tree to be honest.
See below how this tree was in nature. This is what my eye catch at that time.
It was on a slope (well not 45 degrees,maybe 25). During digging I found out that there were two root areas. The main root ball at the bottom and a smaller one the the left. What I did actually was to plant it in a way that both root balls to be in the training pot. In the future with adequate roots at the initial main root ball, the tree will be rotated as it was in nature.
