Quite a tall Juniper

Post  ndleong on Mon Feb 28, 2011 7:12 am

I have just bought a Juniper of approximate 5 feet on 19 Feb 2011. I have worked on it by reducing the size, trimming down unnessary foliage, create some deadwood effect & etc. I would appreciate feedback for improvements:

1. Raw




2. After some works:







3. Repotted but still got a fair bit of works to go

Based on the trunk size at the base I would have made it a much smaller tree - perhaps no more than 2 feet high.

Yeah. After scrolling through all of those pictures, all I can say is: Me too.

I agree as well... however, you may want to wait atleast a year until the tree recovers from what it has already gone through.

Thanks for the comments. I agreed that I have stressed the tree tremendously at this moment and therefore I dont think I wish to anything drastic further. Probably I will reduce the deadwood at the top tree a bit further say another 5-6 inches, creat some deadwood effect here and there, do a bit of pruning and etc. Smile

Hollywood Juniper, Juniperus chinensis 'Torulosa', that's what I'd say if it were here. I would guess the same for Malaysia.

Seriously I have some difficulty in differentiating the types of juniper. I guess this is Juniper Chinensis.. correct me if I am wrong. Crying or Very sad

There are many, many varieties of J. chinensis. Sargent's (shimpaku) is one, this (Torulosa) is another. Hollywood juniper is a common landscape plant.

Nice good Juniper. If me, I'll air layer said about 15 to 18ins from the base. And in 3 months' time I could get another juniper before working on the original one.

Hi Guys.. I have let the try recuperated enough and now I have decided to restyle it. I have actuall remove the entire top part of the tree and use the base as a replacement ...

Your styling is a definite improvement from before. However the "Y" in the trunk isn't ideal. This type of feature is often referred to as a "slingshot" and is a no-no in bonsai design. Perhaps you can jin out the left-hand trunk and develop the right-hand trunk as the foliar portion of your tree.
