This tree has enjoyed a good growing season after the styling by Ian Y to refine the branch positions earlier this year. I have given it a good thinning out (no before pics) and made a few minor twig placements.
I am pleased with the progress and as the pics show the live vein is starting to callous nicely. The dead wood needs cleaned and treated with lime sulphur while the jins need refined. I think the tree is well on it’s way to being a decent bonsai.
