This is my deodar cedar I trained. In your opinion, please tell me how you will categorize the style.

What whas the goal when training it? This is a young tree and it is not too late to make any style out of it.

Hey Wes.
You mean like, you won't change it anymore?

If you don't want to it to thicken much, I think you could wire it into a nice little bunjing cascadin back, if it was mine I would maybe a few more years thickening and building structure, and taper is always good when possible, but to be honest, you just introduced me to the species.

The deodar cedar or deodara is one of four true cedars. Many conifers are called cedars but aren’t true to the genus. Deodar cedars are native to northern India and Himalayas. They generally like mild to warm climates, which explains why they are commonly introduced and do well in California.

Should I thicken the main trunk by doing pushing exercises once a week? I remember seeing a video on YouTube about that.

I intended to train it as bunjin at first but didn’t expect the foliage to grow that long. I think it might even pass as cascade style.

Ok, I don't know this thickening technique, what I do is let it grow on a bigger pot, so it has more foliage, more sap will flow requireing the trunk to thicken to flow more sap...

I don't know how flexible it is, but you should wire branches before they get too stiff to do so...

There's nothing wrong mixing styles sometimes, a Bunjin can go up, then cascade back down...

Here's an example:

Did you train that one? What type of pine is that?

No, it's not mine (But I wouldn't be mad to have it hahaha), that's just an example of what I was talking about...

I think it is a Scot Pine.
