White pine restyle

Post  chris on Tue May 29, 2012 9:57 pm

This is a Pine that I worked on 6 years ago, nothing has been done to it since the owner has however looked after the health of the tree well.





The first thing was to understand what the owner wanted from the tree. It was decided that I would work on the tree and make some big cuts to bring the foliage back as close as I could to the trunk with in reason at this stage of the trees reconstruction. All wire that was possible was removed.

The next stage was to wire and find a path to an image







At this point there was some big changes to think about, the bottom right hand branch is "handlebaring" and taking away the power of thegreat bottom left hand branch. Also there is a heavy area towards the back of the tree on the left.

Good God, it never occurred to them to reove the wire?????

That's a nice save, too bad you have to give it back to them.

Taking the right hand branch of would allow the upper branches on that side to be seperated and wired down. I will meet with the owner some time this week and we will talk it through, I hope he will go with the idea as I think it will make a very powerfull image
I will up date when I know more

Hi Russ
I know what you mean, but not everyone who keeps Bonsai are so into it as us, the owner of this tree has a great Juniper and a big Elm, they are trees to go with the Koi pond. As I was talking to him about his trees it was so clear that he was understanding the ideas and approach that was needed and just maybe he will take greater interest in future.
I love to work with different people and I am lucky to be in a position to do that

Regards Chris

After meeting with the owner I was given the go ahead to remove branches.











This year its a case of feeding and watering well
All the fine wiring and dead wood carving will be done next year along with a repot and a slight ajustment to the front of the tree. This will only happen if the owner turns up next year . I hope he will
