Once black pine seedlings have developed a bit of a trunk, usually after two or three years, it is time starting the wiring. Following the advice of Daisaku Nomoto that young seedlings should develop slowly, I skipped transplant and cable trees in their existing pots 3 “. First I removed the lower needles to facilitate wiring, then I removed the floor superior to the level at which protruded the roots of the trunk.

Nomoto showed me a great trick to anchor the cable into the boat. I measured a piece of wire a little higher than the seedling and the pot and ran the wire through the bottom of the pot. the creation of a small hook with pliers and pulling the thread in secured wire and made it easy to wire the seedling place.

Nomoto showed the types of curves was looking for at this time. The coils were close together and the movement was subtle in all directions -. Perfectly suitable for a medium or large tree

Why does the final size of the tree? The point in this step is the development of a growth along line trunk future. As the smaller trees have tighter curves than larger trees, which made the light curves for trees that eventually will grow large and tight for the future shohin and bonsai kifu.

very small curves on a big tree sometimes they disappear as the trunk thick, and in some cases can cause undercuts – both undesirable effects. Coincidence of the curves for the future size of the tree is a good check against this.
