Walter Pall's main blog about bonsai and his work with trees from day to day. Lots of good pictures of good trees and lots of valuable information about bonsai.
Legendary? What makes it legendary?
How many hornbeams of this quality and size have you styled in one day?
None. But that still leaves us with the question of what makes it legendary.
History will tell.
Discard the jealousy of Mr.Anonymous, Congrats Mr. Pall very nice, but I do have a question: what kind of wood preserver will you use on the cut, what color is it? thanks.
I don't use any wood preservation at all at this point. The woood will get a nice patina within one year It will look greyish/blackish. It will slightly rot during the next years. After five years or so I will brush it heftily with an aggressive steel brush and the structrue will come out. After it looks natural in about ten to fifteen years one can apply wood hardener. If all these wounds became deep holes one day It wuold look spooky and quite cool I think.Trees DO NOT DIE when the core gets hollow. Trees DO NOT mind if wounds rot. Google 'Shigo'.
Very exciting process and result!
Thank you Mr.Pall I really appreciate how you are a great bonsai master and still you are a down to earth guy.
