Nice work - it shows what a little bit of time can do - after all there is no such thing as an instant bonsai.

Can you get a bit of separation in the foliage pads though?

I agree. The 2008 pictures shows how good it really is, but that's lost in the more recent pictures. Any plans to bring the dead wood down onto the trunk?

Nice tree Martin!

Rob and Russell thaks for comment . Yes I know about foliage... in 2008 was almost whole crown made only from one branch... in autumn 2010 I comleted change this one branch. Till now i kept tree in strong groving to complete missing branches. In this time I dont plan spread death wood..... but in future ?....maybe ? Really thanks

It's a great tree, you've done a very good job thumbs up

It's true that it's even better with a bit more empty spaces between the branches, but I think you're right to keep the dead wood as it is now: I suppose it will still ramify, ang grow a little too, so the jins will be the right height then.

A lovely tree you have there. I just have one thing I would point out, that on the deadwood, it seems like there is a.. hollow, which runs upwards. It looks good, but - to me - it seems a bit unnatural that this occurs on all 3 points. Maybe its the photo, but its a tad distracting.
Interesting pot too! Wink

Just a thought.....losing the stuff on the right would bring emphasis to the tapering trunk. Otherwise, to me, it's hidden.

In my view, what maybe missing from this nice tree is some shari on the lower trunk. The "pristine" and very untouched youthful looking lower trunk conflict with the jin and the crown. Carve the trunk and this will be a super tree.

Thanks,
Neil

I think Neil hit the nail on the head. Too much up top, and nothing down low - looks unbalanced. Wonderful yew though!

Część, část, salut, hello, Laughing

For once, we can see a tree with very little dead wood at the bottom, most of the time, it's done to hide big pruning. Here it is not necessary, so i disagree with Neil on thgis point. With age, the bark will natutrally peel off, so what's the use making an artificial tree, or a "juniper-like" yew?...

My suggestion:

Nice tree martin! IMHo the trunk is not the problem that creates imbalance, I think its the movement of the foliage/branch that is not going well with the form of the tree. The current form of the top will suits a short stout trunk that probably leans a little to the left.

If no shari is carved in the trunk, then the jin should be greatly reduced. As it is now, its too much and too busy to achieve good balance.

so choices: 1) carve shari or 2) reduce jins

Not my tree, Just my opinion. I wish I had both Smile

Neil

alaink : thanks for sugestion , I wanted to do something like in your virt...its very nice virt but crown is little bit unbalanced a would need another root position....therefore i decided to trunk and crown go to the left

jun thanks for your comment , I saw a many trees with deathwood like on my bonsai without shari etc. , so for me it isn´t so big problem Surprised)) ...imho crown to the left from alainKs virt do more more static and easy tree therefore I decided to provoke with deathwood Surprised)) .... it looks like tree which had bad time in not so long time
