This will never amount to much. It will never have proper proportions. OK, maybe it could but that would mean scaring beyond what would be considered acceptable.

The proportions are outstanding, the tree is very promising. After only two years in training it lacks detail, of course. There will be a lot more ramification in the next five years and the small branches will get much thicker. The deadwood parts will decay and appear very natural.

Im curious why someone who clearly looks through a professionals portfolio would take the time to discredit his material. Clearly Walter enjoys the tree, otherwise he would not share it with us. If you dont like this material, why would you be looking at someone who is known for working on such material. negativity in the bonsai world is a virus. cure yourself by avoiding looking at this material that "will never amount to much." Personally I love Walter's wild trees!

The tree its not the problem. You lack vision.it takes someone like walter to take a tree like this and make it into an art masterpiece. All of he's trees have an impressive amount of rugged beauty and unique character in the simplest way possible so simple it looks like weather carved it out it self

What exactly are "proper" proportions & who gets to decide?
I think "proper" may even be an unwelcome intruder here.

This tree has already "amounted to much" & clearly will strive to overtake the mundane, outshine, & go way above just "considered acceptance."
This is why I personally love Walter's wild trees too!
