How much work (wiring and bending) did you have to do to this tree??

Walter Pall said...

Not much wiring and very little bending. Just almost 20 years of continuous work. The key to such a bonsai is finding the right material in the first place.

So to get the curves you just highlighted them by removing excess branches?

That is a long commitment to working on a tree, some people have friendships that last less time.
