Ah, yes! The tree sits very well amongat the other works of art in Mireks' garden, Pavel. I can't wait to see moss covering the soil in and around the rocks. It will be a truly amazing image, I think.

This is a very special tree and I am very happy with the work that Pavel has done with the tree, executing the image I had for the tree... this was MINE!!! but Mirek wanted the tree and the guys have done good!

A bit of background on the tree: It was collected in 2008 complete with the rock and it was VERY heavy to carry down the mountain to the car. Far from being ugly (as one member noted) The tree grips the single rock well and is a very natural looking, in all my years collecting I have NEVER found a tree such as this... and congratulate Pavel on his work bringing out the best in the tree. Cool

Hi Pavel,

Beautiful tree, it looks stunning in Mirek's garden.

Tony - how does it feel seeing someone else style a tree that once was yours? Would you have done something similar to Pavel or would you have done the styling differently?

See you both at Burrs

Hi Paul, The tree was bought by Mirek because he saw in the raw material the same as I did. This was a special tree for me as I have never seen nor collected one since that was over a rock (I have one THROUGH a rock)

In the life of this 'bonsai' (because it is NOW a bonsai, It was raw material in my garden) I took the tree to the second stage after establishing, that being: clearing out the branches that would not contribute to the design, and this in turn would channel the energies to those that remain making them more vigorous.

In any one year more than 40 trees leave my possession, some I would love to keep... this was one... but I am happy that Mirek and Pavel have the tree and they have done a great job. AND Paul YOU have seen what I am keeping pale

BTW Burrs is less than six weeks away guys Cool

June 2010

Here is the tree in June 2010 prior to clearing out the branches that would not contribute to the design and then the result of that HARD pruning! It usually scares the sh*t out of clients when I do this... But to achieve a good result this must be done... and Pavels final work confirms this

I was just looking back through some old threads and realising what a fantastic tree this is. Any more recent photos of it Pavel? I hope it is doing well.
ATB, Lee. Very Happy

Perhaps a bit off topic but could I ask you guys familiar with Bacatta how they compare to the Japanese Yew in the way they respond to bonsai culture? They look so similar I am thinking that they are pretty similar, or are they superior?
