TOPIC: Styling a Juniper

Styling a Juniper 6 years 8 months ago #305

Here is my first attempt at styling a juniper. I had a lot of help from what I guess is my bonsai mentor..pic one is the tree when I got it. pic 2 is it after initial pruning.

Beautiful material you have there, nice movement in the trunk! I would wire the branches and then do some more styling-pruning. After wiring it the way you want it to be, you can detail it more and more together with pruning, and I'm sure it will be a great bonsai. :)

This tree is resting in the shade for another week or so. I'm taking my time with this, and all my other trees. I have found that I can read all I want on my trees, but the best tool is experience. I don't want to do too much with this tree and realize that I went too far and undo any progress.
Slow and steady is my motto....mostly because I'm only 2 years into this obsession :)

Way to go, taking time to let the tree recover makes perfect sense! Good luck!

Don't have negative thoughts about things you cannot control. Instead, invest your energy in the positive, present moment.
