sabina juniper #4

Cut back and edited slightly. It is coming nicely.

Walter,

Yes, the cutting and thinning out of leaves/branches, and leaving the shari'd branches aloof gives this composition a very aesthetic look.

For how long you have trained this tree?

For ten years, Shaukat.

Hey Mr. Pall,

I just wanted to say how skilled you are at what you do. I am amazed at your gallery and how much you love to do it.

I actually just purchased a young juniper bonsai, and have it outside my house. I was wondering if you had any tips, especially about shaping, because I am much more of an amateur than you are.

Oh, and what do you think about taking Prometheus, which is his name, indoors for the winter? I hear winter is the best time to shape them, but you'd know better.

I'll keep checking out your gallery and blogs, thanks and keep it up man, you rock!

Tommy, for shaping clues you should take good photographs agaist a neutral beckground and post them on any of the bonsai forums.
It is a very bad idea to bring your juniper into the house in winter. Read the bonsai forums for overwintering bonsai.
