Following shows a few of the Bonsai’s that we have been working on. More details to come.
These last two show the same tree before and after potting up. Every 2-4 years we remove the tree from the pot, clean and trim the roots, then repot with fresh soil. The redwood shown here was started from a cutting and I have been working on it since 2004. Note the multiple stems. This is one of my favorites.
This tree is from the Rotary tree sale in Sherwood Oregon (usually around April 15 each year.
I have been working on this Autumn Flame since 2007. When we first got it I did major trimming to the top bringing down from about 8 feet tall to about 5 feet. We also did some cleaning on the roots and made our first pass at cutting the roots to size. Two years ago it was brought down to the size you see about 3.5-4 feet tall. In the future the tree still needs to lose some of it’s height and planted into a quality ceramic pot.
