Tree 2 looks like a Russian olive, Elaeagnus angustifolia. I haven't seen any used as Bonsai, but I have seen two related species as Bonsai; Elaeagnus pungens and Elaeagnus multiflora, (Thorny olive and Silverberry).

Great, looks like that could be a winner. i started propagation last week (dispite not having a clue what it was) and with the exception of loosin a leaf or two they're doing fine so far.

I was a little worried about Bonsai'ing it to start with as the leafs are rather long and the internodes spatious but the colour and "weep" are beautiful. give me 5 years and hopfully i'll post the startings of a nice Bonsai.

If it is a Russial Olive, do you think letting it fruit might put it in danger? i've heard that some fruiting trees shouldent be alowed to frui as Bonsai.

I think it should be okay. The Russian olive's fruit is small, and I don't think it would take too much energy from the tree. The fruit is not terribly attractive, though.

Hello Mr Majik. The first is a Birch, second Willow leaf Pear and think the third is Cherry or Cherry Laurel. Not sure of the third though
