They look great. In proper pots will be even much better.

Hello Karl. I really like the third one. I hope you don't mind me saying but the first 2 look like Larch to me. The crowns need some upward branching in my opinion.

Hi Will, I style all my deciduous trees as the first time. In two to three years, the new branches grow into the air and then it looks as it should be.
Here is the next Crataegus.

I see what your trying to achieve but its very rare to see weeping primary branches in the crown of a deciduous tree.

Hello Karl. I am a huge fan of Mr Pappalardo and his semi cascade Juniper, ( no 7 on the link ) is at the top end of my top 10 favourite trees. Fantastic styling of Pines and Junipers but I feel the deciduouse trees are often styled in the same way. Still beautifully styled but lacking the deciduous feel and form.

My thoughts exactly Will ! You see this way of styling more and more in exhibitions around Europe. Oak and Olive styled like Juniper and Pine. They are often beautifully styled, but they give off the wrong feeling in my opinion.

Yes, I agree. Often there is no difference between the shape of deciduous and pine trees, juniper. As if was often only one style crown - Pine, Junipers deployed on a different trunk. It's a shame sometimes.

Hi Hans, I appreciate you very much, but if I'm not mistaken wrong then you've designed your Crataegus in the crown so. Or am I wrong. Shocked

Hi Karl, I am sorry if you misunderstood the meaning of my reply. My reply was not so much made about the way you shape your top, it was more meant towards what Will Baddeley sad about the trees in the link you gave us.
And I also appreciate you very much Karl! What I like most about you is that you have a own style and vision and you are obviously very driven and passionate. But I am not a big fan of bending top branches down if you want to represent a liking image of a full grown deciduous tree in nature! There are some exceptions to that rule, and that is in free style bonsai, literati, smaller or cascading trees. And yes I did this bending down of top branches my self on my literati crataegus, that is shaped like no real Crataegus would ever look in nature. But I styled that one a long time ago, it looks nice enough, but I would not style it again in that way if I had to make the same tree over again!
So no hard feelings I hope Karl.
Here are two of my Dutch yamadori crataegus. They are still in the early part of there training. And the pictures are from last year, but they give the impression of how I try to style the trees that are more or les styled in a natural/posible form now a days.





Cheers,
Hans van Meer.

it depends on the tree it depends on the artist and how the artist sees the tree...im a traditionalist when it comes to bonsai and i follow the rules made by the japanese.(most all tree's have an apex)..We style our tree's with this foundation and once we know the rules they can sometimes be broken or changed or modernized alittle bit.I really enjoy karl's tree's and i can catch the feeling too.For a bonsai enthusiast who is trained in the classic or traditional style we view our tree's different and may have a different feeling than others. personally if they were my hawthorn given they are so nice I would put an apex on them since they climb their way up to one^^ cyclops

jie,
Karl's trees got apexes too, the only issue is that they were styled the "wrong" way as perceived in traditional and natural sense.
...in other way of saying it- let pines be pine and let crataegus be crataegus.
...IMHO- if Karl knows that his crataegus was designed like a pine and still proceed with his own style because he wanted it that way, and he is happy with it I think there is nothing wrong with it (tree).
I think the designer of the trees should be the one to be satisfied first...and other peoples (viewers of the art) opinion is just secondary to the artist freedom of expression.
