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.
Hello Mr. Pall, Beautiful work. Regarding the dead hollowed portion, I understand that you let all deciduous species rot so they get a nice natural color. Do you get to a certain point where you are satisfied with the depth of the rot and then apply some sort of wood-hardener? Or do you just leave them alone completely?Lime sulfur would look terrible on broad-leaf trees I think. Thanks Thomas
Thomas, indeed I do nothing. I let it just rot and once a year with a strong steel brush I take off the soft parts. I could fix it with wood hardener for a few years, but I don't. Hollow trees will NOT die becasue of the hollow, contrary to a widespread public belief.
This tree looks like an tree from a fairy story. Great work!
