Mugo semi-cascade

Post  Peter Thali on Sat Mar 21, 2009 12:07 am

Hi Bonsai Lovers,

this mugo pine I collected in the Swiss Alps in October 2002. Now I decided to shape it like a semi-cascade. Today I finished the wiring. Here some pictures.
I hope you like it.
Greetings from Switzerland

I almost like the left side view the best Peter, as the front view has that main branch to the left, which seems a little visually heavy in the photos. However, the trunk is very nice and should be shown. Excellent stylng on the branches, the foliage looks natural. WHat kind of pot are you thinking of?

Hi Will

Thanks a lot for your feedback. I’m still looking for a suitable pot. The tree may now go into a semi-cascade-pot. But what would be best ? Is there anybody who can help with a virtual ?

stunning yamadori peter.
i agree with will.
the first left brach i too heavy and ends up combining itself into the apex.
can it be lowered to be sperate from the apex?
so that you have 3 distinct pads?
if you lighten to load visually the impact of the trunk will increase tenfold and that is a beautiful thing by itself.but with better balance you have a show stopper of a tree.
i hate england somedays.......... no mountains!!!

Hi Peter, great yamadori Mugho. Not sure if the branch structure would allow this crown? By refining the righthand side of the crown I feel will accentuate the cascade on the left. Apologies for my sloppy paintshop efforts.

Matsu and Marko,
I agree, there is still something to do on this tree. I’m not yet really happy with the apex, but I want to wait another growing season before I start to refine the tree. There are only 2 places where the mainbranches are growing: On the top of the trunk (A) and the cascade-branch (B). To reduce the apex and bring the tree in a balance is not so easy, but I will try it.
Thank you very much for your suggestions.
Peter

Hello, Mr. Thali!
First, I must say that I really like all your material! You are having outstanding collecting area, and thanks to showing it on old IBC, because I really learned a lot from watching those pictures and see how area must look like. Ok, here is my suggestion how I see this mugo in future. Hope you like it...

Hello Maija Triglav Tijek,
thanks a lot for your nice virtual. It looks similar like Karl's virtual from Austria. Good idea, I like it.

hi peter.
it is a stunning tree and those newer photos you have just posted shows that more than the previous ones.... WOW!
i would say that if you could close up that elbow bend in the first branch that might lower the foliage and therefore seperate the apex. also by rducing the amount of foliage you will visually enhance the incredible trunk.
but as we know its and evolutionary art and you will find its path as you go.
thank you for sharing it with us
