Tsuga progress




I rewired my Tsuga heterophyla cascade (this bonsai is only 30 cm long from root to tip) I will leave the wire on as long as possible as the branches of this tree tend to bounce back easily to their former shape, too long and the wires will cut in as the branches gradually thicken and cause scars.




This is how it looked before the work




The foliage still needs developing into larger pads as shown in this virtual (a touched up image showing planned development)
