Many of the deciduous trees will be removed this year in late winter . They will then be root pruned and grown on for another year to define main branches and begin the ramification process. Many of the trunks have developed to over 60 mm in this time and nebari,s have reached 100 mm.
Shown here are golden pyracantha and Japanese flowering cherry. Had these two trees been grown in pots their development would be considerably lacking.
The next stage of growth will also help to reduce scaring from larger cuts.

This long needle Japanese red pine was initially purchased by Sugoi Bonsai as a very neglected overgrown tree. The intent was to give it a new lease on life as a bonsai . After repotting into new soil the tree then underwent major branch removal and shortening. Wiring and branch positioning was then undertaken.The next stage will be an attempt to produce back buds . Heavy feeding will be required in order to achieve this .
I hope to repot this tree in August 2020 into a training Bonsai pot if new buds have been created .
I’m sure you’ll agree the initial training process has been quite successful . New photos will be added as the tree continues to develop . It is estimated that this red pine is at least 35 years old so progress may be a little slow .
