Field Maple #4

On this tree one can see what the carving of huge holes in broadleaved trees is all about. As one can see nature does the main job, not the person carving. Carving only prepares the ground for nature to let the deadwood decay in a credible way. Twelve years after carving the ugly stump the marks of man have disappeared. This is the Fairy Tale Bonsai Style as it should be in my opinion.  A very old tree looking very natural and so ugly that it is beautiful again.

The wound was on purpose NOT protected to let nature work. As one can see trees  do NOT die from huge holes in their trunks contrary to what most people think.
