ezo spruce # 1

Ezos spurce, Picea jezoensis, about 100 years old, collected in japan a long time ago, 60 cm high, pot by Ian Bailly.

rest: June 2006

The new growth was cut back with scissors, the crown edited slightly. Now this tree looks very mature. The wire will go off after four (!) years and then we will see whether the branches behave or not. if not, we will have to wire again. This one should be show-ready soon though.

Again many possible forts. Pick your favorite.

I would choose picture 6 or 10.-
Have you already defined your front?

Hi Mr. Walter Pall, i think that the second counting from bottom to the top. I choose this one because it seens that the bonsai is unstabled but on the same time is stable because of the folliage.

Best regards, Miguel Costa.

Hu Walter,

for me it's the last one. Better vision of nebari, trunc and branch.
I think best mouvement too.

I disagree. It does not matter so much which the "front" is with this tree right now. We should not get hung up on picking it either. Just enjoy each view for what it brings to the table.

Thanks Walter. Beautiful tree.
