I would say it should make branches .I had one I performed a large trunk chop on and it back budded a few branches but not many .If you do get it chop it back incrementaly to try to promote further back budding down low over the course of a few years. If there are no lower branches.As far as payment without seeing the tree it is only worth what you are willing to pay for it

A larch from the nursery may not be very good bonsai material. Are you anywhere near Preston County? American larch grows there. If you or someone you know can get a collected larch, they are prized as the finest bonsai material in the Northeast.
