Hi All,

Od.. I thought this tree would be on here.. A long time ago I bought a yew in a nursery to create a formal upright tree out. I trimmed it, fed it and.. Forgot about it. Today at my bonsaichool the theme was ormal upright. So I decided to revived this yew from my backbench and give it a chance on life. No before, as I thought this was on here already.. AND YES..Chokkan is the term. But the title does not edit.



Would be happy to hear your thoughts. I think 2 branches are missing to create a good rythm.

With a little luck a bud appears, otherwise you can hide the gap whith the branch at the back.
like it's written belowe.

Which lower branch? There are 2 small yins at the bottom of the trunk, if that is what you mean? And there are shari all along the trunkline, which I put there when originally bought. These are now starting to swell and mature.

Time? Letting lower branches extend and keeping upper short. And buying good material that already has taper :)
