thats really nice,

if you use a little technique on the very bottom of the trunk to fatten the thin part of the base it will strengthen the appearance of the tree and finish the otherwise totally perfect taper.

good tree,

Best regards Marcus

I agree Marcus. Pavel can you root graft on the lower right side to improve the nebari and eliminate what we call the "pigeon breast" root to trunk transition? And maybe move the tree to the center of the pot?

Hi Pavel

Very nice, light and feminine expression - now I may be inspired and know what to do with a Pine I have waiting here.

hi pavel / Rob.

i wasnt thinking so much of a root graft as i like the roots just on the opposite side to the curves and foliage - it makes the tree flow nicely from left to right.

this is a little trick i have seen 'in the flesh' that perfectly fattens narrow trunk sections - i have borrowed the picture from John Trotts own gallery page to show you. the sections of trunk between the wires fatten fast, then you just move the wires around the trunk a little and another section fattens. it is the best method i have ever seen - no slicing the trunk, hitting with hammers etc so the bark remains perfect while the fattening happens.

Thanks gentlemen for the very nice comments. The tree was originally Mirek for sale. Now seems to be a tree for some time about leaving. Very Happy Very Happy

Hi Markus - Thanks for an interesting show. How long are the wires in the test on the trunk? What caused the effect of this technique? Do you have pictures before and after? Thank you.

hi Pavel - i will have to describe until i can visit the trees and take some more pictures as the tree belongs to john. - this was the only picture on his website - http://www.mendipbonsai.co.uk/

the wires are only as long as the thin section of trunk - if you have a 7cm piece of thin trunk then the wires are 7cm long.

the ties hold the wire tight - the trunk can not expand where the wires touch so it expands twice as much in the gaps between the wires. once the gaps between the wires are filled with trunk you cut the ties, move the wires around the tree and use ties to put them on in a new place - soon all the expanded sections of trunk match up and the thin areas are gone.



it is hard to fully explain - if you do a practice of the technique on a sacrifice branch of a fast growing tree in the ground you will see how the trunk swells between the wires.

cheers Marcus
