Field Maple #8 second flush

Why a "second flush"? Are you defoliating?

He's applying his "hedge pruning method" and this is the second flush of the season: flush>harden off>prune>repeat. Not quite defoliation, more like an improved, horticulturally correct way of achieving the same/better results while maintaining and improving tree health as full defoliation over time can be very detrimental. Google search 'Walter pall hedge pruning' to find the article, it's a great one.

Walter, you are an innovator and have so much to give the bonsai community, a response of "sure" is not doing the art form it's justice! You're better then that.
