Juniper - initial styling

Post  Justin Hervey on Tue Jun 23, 2009 9:24 am

This is a 2006 garden collected juniper (sergenti I believe).
Most of the dead wood was in existance due to a borer beetle infestation and the associated wood-rot, most of which has been removed in the process of accentuating the grain.



Here is the tree after the initial styling and potting-up:
All comments and suggestions would be appreciated.

Possible angle change to create better movement.


This is where I see it going...
Removing the short thick jin at the top-left bend as well as a little of the dead-wood to the top-right bend, as I think this will enhance the movement and create better balance.


I would be interested in your opinions...
