bonsai general - 39 views



Two years ago, I started a few black pines cork bark graft (See “Creating black cork bark pine” ). Grafts taken, and enter which began reducing the foliage on the host tree.

Now, a year later, it is time to repeat the process. Both stems and their hosts grew well last year, so they need to further reduce the regularity of black pine foliage to encourage foliage cork bark.

I started by cutting the branches, leaving only one session in each tree. then I took off some needles. When there were branches that grow on the stem that could shadow me these branches removed first. The idea is to slow down the host tree and to provide the rod with much sun as possible. This is what the process looked like three young trees.
