Hi Hirow,

There are plenty of ugly trees out there, but ugly is subjective. Thank goodness or a lot of us would never get married. Laughing

Regarding the first tree you are on the right path. The basis of a good trunk is there for a shohin. Hopefully the leaves can reduce or show it defoliated.

The second tree I'd make into a literati style tree. Tall and skinny with small foliage pads.


The third wold make decent sumo style with lots of carving to reduce the jins.

Hi Hirow!

I am not a bonsai master but here is my idea on your trees.

for the "bignay"- you can cut the apex now but let the lower branches grow long and wild. control the top and thicken the lower branches.

For the bantigue that almost died. let it grow for another year, just feed it when it got stronger and do not do anything to it yet.

regards,
jun

I'm only a beginner so please take this with a grain of salt. When I saw this picture I immediately thought of a windswept style using this as the front. I don't know anything about pemphis or where it grows and this style may be unsuitable, but that's just what my young eye saw.

Have a great week
Sam
