Hi Eaton . Seeing as your only twenty minutes away, how about you bring it over and i will help you carve your Yew and your posted Juniper? I dont like the movement of the deadwood away from the rythym of the tree and its too linear. What do you think.

Hmm. Seems to me he's doing OK. The canopy needs some work is all.

Jim. Dont get me wrong ,it is a very good tree but asked for comments on deadwood. All i can see in the hollow is where someone has pushed a Makita around, it needs finess.Bit early in year for wiring and styling? Oh and Happy Birthday bye the way.

Hi Eaton,

Its a beautiful Shohin Yew. Love the carving.

It's not from Graham Potter of Kaizen Bonsai, is it?
