A number of my black pines are turning eight this year. Some are beginning to look young bonsai. Others simply look young. Since none of them has grown to the size that I have in mind for them, the work at this stage is simple.

I trained tree down on the exposed root style. The goal of this year to below the tree growth increases. To avoid blowing over, I took up shooting.

It also replaces the tree trunk with a branch wiring up and secure it to the butt of the anterior trunk. Changing the main trunk of this type is a good way to add movement and produce the conical shape.

Another young pine was diskette. I telegraphed the trunk a few years ago with some very tight corners. The weight of the long branch exhaust caused the tree bouncing in the wind. To keep the industry moving too and break the trunk, I removed some of the excess foliage.

Some trees are puzzles for me. I have found that some of the most difficult – Read: less attractive – it just takes longer before the future direction becomes clear. I’m waiting for light trimming and another year or three new growth can help with this.

Some of the smaller trees do not produce strong feelings in me. I’ll let them grow a year before making any cuts.

I really like this stage of development, because the work is simple and the effect on the future of the tree can be huge. Some of my most desperate cases have become fun trees. The rest are growing nicely -. As landscape trees
