Broom Style Trident?

Post  Guest on Wed Apr 03, 2013 7:34 pm

I am looking for some insight on Trident Maples trained in broom style. I have been looking for pictures online but I haven't come across any good broom style Trident.

The reason I want to know is because I have a shohin pre-bonsai in training that is naturally styled as an informal broom style (not to be confused with formal broom). I can always wire the branches to make it look more informal upright... but the way it is now, it looks very natural.

I know I'm delving into semantics here, but an "informal broom" would be an informal upright. "Broom style" is, generally, considered to be part of the formal upright class of bonsai.

But call it what you want, there should be scores of nice trident "informal brooms" around. I seem to recall a LARGE thread started by Rob and participated in by almost everyone on the IBC debating the broom definition; I bet you'd find one there.

It is here: http://ibonsaiclub.forumotion.com/t2285-clean-sweep-show-us-your-brooms
