Some of Alex' trees

Today Alex brought the trees that he plans to exhibit at the Bavarian Bonsai Convention in November.

A Korean hornbeam, pot by Josef Mairhofer
gingko, pot by Horst Heinzlreiter
Scots pine, pot by Josef Mairhofer

the ginko in this state is what we call a 'hammer tree'.

what is the best time of the year do do the "hammer swing" looks stressfull?...or is it done gradually?

The term hammer tree doesn't seem to translate readily to English, at least. I thought it meant a powerful tree.

Well, it is a bonsai that hits you like a hammer when you see it. It's a killer tree in English.
