Juniperus Sabina

Post  Cees on Sun Nov 01, 2009 1:36 pm

Hello everybody.

This is my first post on this forum.
First something about myself.
I am from Holland and I both my first tree to and a half year ago.
Sins that day the Bonsai virus really get me.
I did some workshops in a good bonsai studio where I learn a lot bud a realise that I am still a beginner.
I want to show some pictures off my Junipers Sabina with I both last spring.
The tree is 70cm high and the feet is about 12cm with.
I just removed most off the wires and will leave it alone to next spring.
There is still a lot off work to do on this tree bud that’s what I like and I am in no hurry.

Sorry for my poor English.
Greetings,
Cees.

Your English is perfectly understandable. We visit The Netherlands quite often to visit good friends, and your English is a LOT better than my Nederlands.

What a nice tree to work on for one of your first. I wish it had been photographed against a plain background. I can't see the top at all clearly. But it looks like you have branch up there on the right that is a bit too thick for the height of the tree. Some deadwood up there might be called for.

Good job!

Thanks for your advise.
When I have a background big enough to cover this tree I will make a new picture.
I am not sure withs branch you mean.
The one I point out on the next picture is only there as a strong point for some wires and will be removed later.
There is still a lot off work to do and I find it very difficult to give the top the right shape but now I will leave him up to next spring.

That should be a very satisfying tree to work with over the years. Base and first branch are quite elegant and the taper is unusually good for a juniper.

I think the next one up on the right, a back branch that points to the top of the chair, is the one Jim means. I think it is too thick as well. Very nice styling otherwise. thumbs up

Hi Cees

Treat to have you 'on board' your English is way better than my Dutch but I can say "Scheveningen" correctly.

The Dutch have a great bonsai Tradition... you are in good company Smile

I am travelling over the High Seas next year to Visit Hans van Meer... the best Bonsai artist in Holland... you should get to know him.

Yes. That's the one. It may, of course, be an optical illusion in the 2 dimensional picture.

Alright, I have seen the branch you mean and I think you are right.
I will see what I can do next spring.

I never met Hans van Meer bud I know his work.
He really got talent.

By the way, If you can say 'scheveningen" you are almost Dutch.Laughing
Thanks for the welcome.

Greetings,
Cees.

Nicely done!

My wife can say "scheveningen" but MY tongue won't wrap around it. We spent some time there back when The Netherlands hosted the World Equestrian Games.

Your tree has progressed very nicely, well done. Are there plans to adjust the planting angle? I think it looks like it could be tilted slightly to the trees left for better balance.

Thanks for the reactions.

Are you sure about the jin?
What do you mean with, Are there plans to adjust the planting angle?

jin

Post  abcd on Wed Oct 30, 2013 5:38 am

Hello, the jin on the base of the trunk are older, so, they are shorter , on juniperus, long jin are on the head of the tree, after cutting this jin, you create an empty space , i also cut and separate the plates on left side , beautifull tree, rare style with this species

thanks tor your replay.
Actually the foliage on the left side are three different branches.



Red first.
Blue second.
Green backbrach.

shift the backbrance to the right is a option?
I will think about the jin I understand your explanation.

Greetings,
Cees.
