In case you were not aware of this. I don't wish to be an impugner, but the question of collection is a sensitive one in some circles.

Mr. C,

Great material. I see an informal upright. Try different angles. My initial feeling is raise the left side and rotate 10 to 15 degrees left or right.

The "front" as shown in the photo can be described as the "obvious front" which can sometimes be improved by rotating the tree. If possible show this tree to a fellow (experienced) bonsai practitioner in your area to get some better advice.

Best regards,

Augustine

In case you missed it here's the issue of concern geo points out:


Justification:
This species is a robust species, and is widespread and common in some regions. The main threat to this species is collection for use in the ornamental bonsai trade. There has been an estimated 21% decline in mangrove area within this species range since 1980. Additionally, mangrove species are more at risk from coastal development and extraction at the extremes of their distribution, and are likely to be contracting in these areas more than in other areas. It is also likely that changes in climate due to global warming will further affect these parts of the range. Although there are overall range declines in many areas, they are not enough to reach any of the threatened category thresholds.

Now testing seedling from Budi, to see how fast it grows and thickens, additionally airlayering.
So we maybe able to train this tree, without harming the environment.
Wish me luck.

* Also found a shrub, that has the seed pod of the Buttonwood, but smaller leaves and more branches - stay tuned.

This plant is found from Africa to pacific Asia. crushide71 is from the Philippines. There are over 7000 islands in the Philippines, which means that there is probably a lot of mangroves. Before we start raising red flags lets look for specific data about Pemphis in the Philippines being over harvested for the bonsai trade or what ever Eco crisis we all want to stop. flutter eyelashes cheers all

George,

I'm fully aware, but do you also consider all the factors? why and the reality?.
This is a chain Hunters+Designers(seller)+Collectors, one has a defined purpose and specific goal.

How could you protect this species? we look to the chain and I'll leave for you to decide who to stop.

The age old question. Other than sometimes enforceable,sometimes laughingly unenforceable,laws-the only way to make any kind of difference in this cruel,human world-is to shoulder individual responsibility for one's actions. Hunters(I like your choice of word there),especially the ones who do it for the money,need to be watched closely. The bonsai enthusiast must be aware of the issues as they impact each species. And especially the species that grow in her or his area. I don't know the threat to this tree in the Philippines. You must.

George.
