Nice work Bro keep em coming
Sorry, but I'm very new to bonsai. After a while, do you remove the wires? This might be an asinine question but I really don't know much about bonsai.
Miguel Garibay (2 months ago)
Yes. Before the tree grows around the wire

Thank you! You're an artist with living media. I appreciated the whole thing including your explanations of triangles around the whole piece. Look forward to more! Many blessings.

By far the best video that I have seen on wiring. Plenty of detail on wire choice and placement, as well as limb choice and placement. Thank you!

Hello Jason:  Thanks for the awesome lesson on designing and wiring this tree. Do you ever come to OHIO ?    AWESOME BONSAI TREE
Eastern Leaf (11 months ago)
Thanks Gregory. Right now, I do demonstrations/workshops in California. But maybe at some point, that sounds like a great idea. I would definitely like to connect with other parts of the U.S. Thanks for watching!

I couldn't be bothered to wire this extensively. I'm too lazy. I might wire a branch here and there but yeah. I like cutting and growing the shape in. More chance involved I guess but. Again- too lazy
Zlaya Ports (1 year ago)
How long does one leave the wire on?
John Fonvergne (1 year ago)
Jason provides excellent demonstration not seen on other videos. Always trying to get a camera view clearly on the work he is creating for the viewers and explanations that are easy to follow.

I sure would like to see a video on how you created the awesome nebara on the juniper. I have been enjoying your videos and learning a lot. I have been collecting bonsai and now I want to learn how to turn a small tree into Bonsai.
Alex Tabares (1 year ago)
How long typically do you leave the wires on till you can take them off?
Carlyle Hithe (1 year ago)
I love your lessons on Bonsai design elements.. One suggestion that would dramatically help visualize the design would be to install a white panel or sheet covering your cabinets of pots. Your designs are so aesthetic and graceful that a white background would intensify the design affect. Thanks for sharing your skill and talent.

Why do you not do delivery to United Kingdom
xburningindigo (1 year ago)
Vinnie Gaming There are probably international mailing restrictions for live plants.
Suraj Nirmale (1 year ago)
Hey Jason very informative video. it would be nice if you could diagrammatically explain the styling of the tree in to various shapes. we would understand more which branch to cut and which to keep... thanks a ton for these.😃

I use a liquid plant food for my bonsai's, should I still fertilizer or not?
Gravelord Nito (1 year ago)
I'm going to order a bonsai from your site this monday. love the videos very helpful!
DeadlyUSMC (1 year ago)
Hey Jason, need some advice. I just got back in to bonsai, well, kinda starting all over again after years of not having a tree. I just picked up 3 (pretty much seedling) Trident Maples, 2 very small Black Pines, and a Scots Pine. If I took some pics of the Scots Pine and send them to you in email, could you let me know if it is time to start wiring, and possibly some branch selection advice? Thanks and trying to watch as many of your videos as I can lol.
Thomas Kauffman (1 year ago)
How long do you leave the wire on before you can remove it and then generally speaking how frequently would you rewire?
Maeta M (1 year ago)
depends on the species. I usually hear 4-8 weeks depending.
Lester Valencia (1 year ago)

RedLightHitter (1 year ago)
I noticed you trim only the bottom needle-leaves of the Juniper and leave to tops going upward. Is the the common way to ?
Edwin (1 year ago)
i hope you make more videos on regular basis ^^
Hollie Nelson (1 year ago)
Can you create bonsai trees from normal tree saplings/seeds? If so, am i able to create one from one of my very small Japanese maple saplings?

Nice work mate!
Bonsai Talk (1 year ago)
As a Bonsai artist, i dont think you ever can overlearn or ever stop talking about pad design and trimming design for bonsai, movement, scale and optic depth... as always, great vids brother.
WuPiDu (3 months ago)
True. I guess he's just doing what's works for him! And I actually like his styling technique, very uniformed! Great job bud!
Bruce Williams (1 year ago)
Thanks for that very informative video. At one point you said to start wiring from the OUTSIDE OF THE TREE. I take that to mean to wire the smallest branches at the outside of the pad before wiring the larger supporting branches inside. But, is it true you still wire those smallest branches from inside to outside? From bark toward the needles??
Eastern Leaf (1 year ago)
Hi Bruce, Yes, if the primary branches are set, you can start to wire from the outside branches first on the pad and work toward the inside branches. However, if the larger primary branches need to be wired, you'll need to wire that first and then proceed to the secondaries. In this video, the inside branches are set or lowered with guy wire. In my wiring a bonsai branch video, it goes over how to wire the primary branch first. Hope this helps! -Jason

Very nice, thanks for sharing! How often do you have to wire bonsi trees?
Eastern Leaf (1 year ago)
Hello MaryG, we will have to remove the wire in about 6-8 months. After that, we can wire again but since more branches are set, it will be a little less work. :)
Morry Pysarchik (1 year ago)
Great job.Your instruction is superb.
mark suson (1 year ago)
great video. was that nursery stock or collected?
Luke Andrews (1 year ago)
how old is it approx?
Eastern Leaf (1 year ago)
Hello, this tree is not collected. It is nursery stock. You'll be able to find material like this much easier but you will have to wait for the growth.

Bertrand Plouffe (1 year ago)
Thank you Jason, very instructive. How long did it take you from start to finish? I realy like this time lapse, and seeing your work from start to finish.
Eastern Leaf (1 year ago)
Hi Bertrand. I took some breaks but it was about a total time of 5-6 hours of wiring at a relaxed pace. :)
Felix Lugo (1 year ago)
