How to form the trunk of a bonsai?
Mold your bonsai trunk through the fence and get the style of bonsai you want!

We have dedicated the last post to the wiring bonsai technique to obtain the necessary skills to carry it out effectively without jeopardizing our tree.

This article will discuss about the process of wiring to shape the trunk, this technique is used to “reeducate” the bonsai.

The purpose of this work is that you get the type of bonsai you want and feel satisfied with your copy.

Let’s begin:

The first thing to do is cut a piece of wire with a length slightly more than a third trunk.

Then insert the wire tip vertically into the substrate (preferably less showy bonsai side), this will hold it securely.

Then in contrast to the clockwise, place the wire upward at angles of 45 °. Continue until you reach the beginning of the branches.

Once completed, you are finished wiring the trunk. However there are some considerations to keep in mind:

  1. 1. Sometimes you need to wire a log twice (or even thick branches). This means that you must add a second wire.
    Once you have placed the first, the second wire inserted into the substrate and roll just below the first wire; so it will be easier. Prevent cross!
  2. Only when / the wire / s are in position, you can take the trunk to the position you want.
    Remember that wiring must remain for 3-6 months to be effective, but depends on the thickness of branches and trunk.
