Started as a matchstick-thin cutting. The pot is still too big, but I couldn't risk removing any more roots...

Looks very promising. Good structure of branches showing typical deciduous tree growing pattern. Take care the roots are not growing too thick
at the base. But of course important with a large sized training pot, if just roots are pruned properly at each transplanting and do not overgrow.
Did you start it as a cutting Jonathan, and how long time ago.

Regards
Morten

Hy Jonathan.

Consistent work.
How many years you needed to come to this?
For me i would leave it in this pot a bit longer
so i could continue to work on nerbari and wound healing.thumbs up
regards, Sunip;)

I am curious of the size of this tree. And also how long ago it was taken as a cutting, and did you plant it in the ground for a time?

Nice little tree. Thanks for sharing

Very nice little tree.

Beginners take note: Given enough patience, a "matchstick" can turn into a "majestic" mini.

Great shohin Jonathan. I really like the position and movement of the third picture.

Thanks all for the compliments and advice.
As for the questions asked:
-i took the cutting maybe ten years ago
-the tree was never planted out in the ground, but was grown in large pots, and was probably man-high at some point.
-as for photos in leaf, this is the first year that this tree has looked ok to me, and previous years all involved lots of growing wild and messy to build the branches. so, it has not yet looked like a proper bonsai in leaf. Next year though...

This is the first year i have had the time and space to begin to take bonsai really seriously. While in college, i couldn't really keep up with what humble trees i had. Hopefully now many of my older trees that have been knocking about for years can become presentable, and some of the material i have been collecting recently can make some progress as well.

Very good job! Ten years is a considerable time of dedication for a young man. I wish I could see how it turns out a a new shohin this year.
Best wishes and thanks for sharing!

Since you all asked so nicely, here it is today. The pot's a better shape, but the branching is still underdeveloped. Getting there...
