How to style bonsai tree using practice specimen

24 ratings | 913 views
Just thought I'd show one of the first practice tees I started on.. you can practice bonsai techniques without ever touching a bonsai tree.. You can use a bush or tree in your yard.. now if your still a kid check with yer parents first.. This tree will probably never come out of the concrete it's growing through but it's help me work on my pruning and clip n grow techniques this year... The art of bonsai is pretty much like anything else in life... practice makes you better at it... Anyway hope you enjoy this short you tube video showing how I keep this tree in shape..

I like the idea of honing your skills on something that isn't necessarily a potential bonsai. This will increase your confidence when you work with your specimen trees! This could be helpful with Jin and shari too.

Lenora Rice yes, creating Jin, wiring, and pretty much anything to do with bonsai can be practiced on trees, branches or bushes that may never be used for bonsai but are already available in your yard...

Here's a link for tree identification. I'm still pretty sure it's in the oak family, as the leaves match. Check this out for yourselves. http://www.wikihow.com/Category:Plant-Identification Domo.

Perfection & what a great idea! Did a bit of research on the tree/bush & I'm pretty sure it's in the genus of the Quercus. Ha! Elm. Now which of the 600+ Species??? I was leaning toward the Pin Oak, which is common & 'invasive' in our region but on review, the leaves look like dwarfed English Oak {Quercus robur}. I say dwarfed because what has happened here, with it growing for quite some time in the cement, it is a 'natural' bonsai! If it is a Pin Oak, bonus for you, it would have very shallow roots to pull out & put into a pot! Love the clip & grow! Domo Arigato Sensei, Hai!
