I am proud that he worked on a tree purchased from Bent Tree Bonsai. The tree is a honeysuckle that is 35 years old and had been in my nursery for the last 5 years.
Pedro explained that the honeysuckle is actually a vine and takes a long time to actually grow to this size.
Pedro continues to cut the other trunk, removing most of the foliage.
Having put a representation of what the tree will look like on the easel, Pedro now begins to wire. He hopes to turn this small branch into a third trunk.
This is the front of the tree. Pedro says the tree will develop foliage over the summer. In a couple of years, it will be repotted into a bonsai container. The tree will be auctioned off in October of this year. This concluded Pedro's demonstration.
This is all for now.
