5 alberta spruce bonsai tree styles pt 2

85 ratings | 11405 views
part 2 of my most in depth videos on how to create different styles of bonsai trees using the same species of trees... almost any tree or bush can be trained to whatever style of bonsai type you want it to be but some trees are already headed in certain directions naturally by mother nature ... so i basically took what direction i felt the trees where already headed in and would lend themselves to a certain style... as i learn more with each tree i work on i find it easier to make decisions on which direction to head with each tree... i hope you guys will also find it easier to see the potential in your trees... if one already has most of it's growth cascading downward then it makes sense to style it in a cascade style.. the same goes for a tree that is growing straight up with good taper to style it in a standard upright style... some trees or bushes have so much movement and branching that you just have to make a decision on which way to go... maybe you just pic your favorite style and go with it...

The one with the crazy twist at the bottom could be laid over at 90 degrees and only hav foliage at the top literati style using the bend to get it positioned.
Bass n' Bonsai (1 year ago)
Arc Turus yes lots of possibilities

Hey BnB! Thank you! Been waiting for part 2 of this series. Hmmm. I've never seen a conifer as a broom-style so looking forward to seeing that one come to fruition. I did find a nice twin trunk in one of my books & they had chopped the 2nd trunk at the usual 1/3 down point for better definition. And then those Literatis, {bunjin}, one of them appeared to me to be the beginnings of a slant style, perhaps? Beautiful trees & great instructions, as usual. And then comes the wintering over... Hai! Ganbatte Kudasai!

Maggie Rezac thanks

You might want to consider a sheet or other plain background when styling. With the other dense foliage in the background it is difficult to see some of the definition.
Bass n' Bonsai (1 year ago)
Don Callander yeah im still working on that.. used a sheet in previous videos

The formal upright tree is awesome! They are named picea glauca though?

See you can not hear me. Love the root, trim bottoms off ... clean between tops. Later you can put a birdhouse or lol fort in between. Lol. You are doing good work.
Loyce March (1 year ago)
I was crying. No leave the top so you have a tall pine. But it is cute. Needs a rock.

Loyce March thanks
