It is a really interesting and old Yamadori. It is not a classic beautiful bonsai but rather a ugly rugged tree witch I absolutly love.
|Acer campestre. Defoliation, wiring and some branch shortening.|
|My son Alvin for size comparison.|
I also defoliated a Ficus retusa I have had for about five years now. I think it starts to look really nice.
|Ficus retusa. Ready for a haircut.|
|Wired and ready to soak up some sun.|
|The same tree 4-5 years ago. It´s coming along nicely.|
The last tree is a Hazel( Corylus avellana) that I defoliated a couple of days ago. It has a lovely clumpstyle trunk and a fat nebari, but the leaves is on the larger side. I´m excited to see how small they will be now after the defoliation. I will post a picture for you in a couple of weeks.
