I like the copper color of the leaves this year. It reminds me of a beech tree. Very Happy

Gary, how is this Zelkova going on?

Not well. I lost the whole top of the tree this last winter along with many of my other bonsai. Although I overwintered them in the same manner, at 28ºF, we had an unusually
harsh Winter with a stretch of 30 days of below 0ºF temperatures and I had great losses.

I just went out and snapped a photo of this Zelkova. I'm just glad the trunk survived.



I'm a little heartbroken but I'll survive along with the tree. I'm looking forward to restyling it, it's the only way way for me to look at it.

I re-potted it and I'm still waiting to see what buds I can use before I prune it back and seal the cuts.

Sorry to hear about the losses. No hay mal que por bien no venga. Hopefully you can use the opportunity to fix anything you were considering improving before. I hope it bounces back well.

Such a beauty it was, so glad you did such a documentation on it. One day it'll be better than it was...
At least you don't have any trunk building to do to slow you down this time.

I know, the trunk is a good one and the basic structure is good. That's sometimes what happens in Bonsai. It will come back in spades.

Sorry for lost of crown. Good thing is you still have nice trunk and base of brunches. Now you just need good budding and shouldn't take long the tree to recover back. Wish you good luck.

Actually it may take a couple of years to reestablish the secondary branching and then work on the tertiary branching, it will be fun. I'm just glad the trunk is alive! It's perfectly
round with no scars. I grew this from a seedling and it seems I've had it forever.
