Trunk hollowing

Post  Storm on Tue Sep 22, 2009 5:35 pm

Well, I was thinking about a little thing.. I have an Elm, and it is a small tree and not really a good bonsai. I have really wanted to try to carve some trunks to see how it goes. I would like to try to hollow out the trunk on my little elm, but when is the right time to do it?
I assume that its best to wait for spring, but I can barelly hold my fingers away from it..
Ofcourse, I dont like to kill trees, but I only payed 10$ for it..

I'd repot it and pread the roots in a much larger (but not deeper) container, with a nutritious mix for a couple of months.

After it has adapted and taken strength for a very important growth would I do anything drastic on it IMHO...
