This tree has been collected by me in 2012 ( one of my first yamadori). After two years i think that I have the proper way to develop it and turn into some pre-bonsai tree.
2012 as it was collected and styled in one go ( I know that now it wasn’t good for tree)
2013 after whole season
I prefer this angle
July 2014 as You can see the foliage is getting dense but I’m not happy with overall shape
January 2015 I have had a look one more time and I think this tree is very boring, no trunk movement, no taper, all foliage very high – that is not good and it will not better if I will keep this way. What I like in this tree? It is the very bottom part of trunk, and nebari.
this is my fever part of this tree.
So the plan is chop of all top branches and start from scratches, just trunk base and the very first , very young shuts.
I just wondering what you think about? Any other idea? Please feel free to comment.
