Nice evolution, thanks for sharing. Did you make a full air layer?

Hi,
Yes, I did. I loved the old bark and trunk movement that's why I decided to take this plant but at the roots was trunk stenosis.

Great tree and good work as always. Thanks for posting this, we don't see Birch used in bonsai enough I feel.

I'm led to believe that they suffer a lot of branch die back if pruned incorrectly. Have you found this? Do you have any special approach to cutting this tree or do you treat it like any other deciduous material?

Regards

Thank you for your nice comments.
During the season I cut it out large leaves. I cut out a vigorous branches. Unfortunately, after the winter can wither some branches. I replace them with new ones Wink

As you can see from year to year it is getting prettier Smile

i agree that lost branches are easily replaced with new ones... at least on the himalayan birch i am working on

of course the branches may not be where we want them to be, but continuous choices are always springing up and from what i have heard, birches tend to do whatever the hell they want anyways so...

i like the direction your is going and i look forward to seeing how that new top eventually gets the aged bark to blend with the trunk

It's the same

but 15 years in pot and it die , betula is a very dificult species to grow in pot , branches die without apparent reason , in japan , this specie is no longer cultivated in bonsai because of these problems
