Ficus Bejamin Toll road saved, here is the ficus that I saved from a toll road building site. This tree as a bunch of Bougenville (http://ibonsaiclub.forumotion.com/t17439-bougenville-saved-of-a-jakarta-toll-road-project). I had the tree planted into a large bucket with lava sand- compost ratio 3-1 for about 7 month. I clipped some of the branches during this growing period. Here the steps being taken to present.
I carved the tree with a "Terrier" and applied lime sulphur. Wiring was done only on the main branches at present, to protect the branches I applied some rubber tire so that the wire not cutting into the branch.

Hi Kevin, I will try, so the top of the carved wood stays visible.
