While maintenance work such as cutting smaller or wiring can make a brightness of trees, are the largest cuts that really speed along development. Of course, we not always enter workshops waiting to make these big cuts. Such was the case of a tree that was presented to the Bay Island Bonsai workshop last week. After selecting a new front and then transplant pine, it became clear to the owner of the tree that the first branch of the Left was too low and too heavy.

lightening first branch made a big difference that will really show the next time the tree is decandled cable. And I do not think this is going to be far as the tree is healthy. Here are some pictures of the transplant.
