Wow! I really like the taper and trunk line. Great tree thanks for posting it.

I believe it will look good when it fills in.
Might you consider removing the first branch on the left on the main trunk? Although lots of JBP bonsai have low first branches.

I have a triple trunk JBP, but I believe there were three seedlings that have grown together over the years. On mine the main trunk foliage all died (due to some fungus I believe) except for two branches I had grafted from one of the other trees. Those are the only two branches alive now and they seemed to tolerate the fungus so its back to the drawing broad with this tree. Probably end up being a three tree bunjin unless I can find the remaining life line and graft more branches lower on the trunk.

Very Nice!

It only seems like the middle trunk is a little hidden. Also the bends in the middle trunk are opposite of the bends in the main tree, which is usually problematic to the eye in a grouping like this. Just something to think about, but good looking tree and it looks nice wired out. I'd say your on your way to a pretty tree.

Hi Peter,

I like this JBP a lot. I do think that the first branch of the biggest trunk is too prominent. I feel that it might obscure the other two trunks, but I am not game enough to suggest its removal.

Would you be able to tell us how this bonsai come about please? Thanks.

I am creating my own multi-trunk JBP -- from a single tree. I am thinking of air-layering a multi-branch one as well.

Best regards.

Really great work, but I wonder about that primary left branch as well; it seems to take too much of my attention maybe because it's so much more filled out. Yet, I'd hate to cut it off. Let us know your plans.

Yes that left lower branch slows the movement to the right.
But before removing that branch i would wire the top of it down and see what it does with the two smaller ones and the total.
Maybe there is showing a nice and original story about equilibrium between the three.
Maybe there is more to gain then to chose for the obvious?
Time enough, look at it next year, in the maine time it is thickening the trunk.

Right now, I don't want to remove the lowest left branch. I'm going to see how the foliage fills in first. I purchased the tree at the 1st National Exhibition in Rochester, NY in 2008. I don't mind the middle trunk's bends being opposed to that of the other two trunks. To me, this keeps the composition from being "too neat". Thanks for your comments Very Happy

I like composition, I had a similar problem with a twin trunk plum. All that was required was shortening the left side. I think if you take the first two left branches back by half it solve the problem.

Have you also considered removing the central trunk? To me it almost looks a bit cluttered in there!

Hello Peter. Iwould also be tempted to remove the first branch. Apart from eliminating the flat line of foliage across all trunks, I think it would enhance the trunk line of the main tree. Good work though Very Happy

Great virtual, Pavel. I checked the tree for the branch placement. It looks realistic to achieve. Thank you.

Hi Peter... great composition with a great future without doubt.
The only thing that I would think of changing is the apex position for balance - crude virt below, Pavel beat me to it but it is a similar idea.
