In this video I show the carving and styling of an Ulmus minor/Field Elm bonsai, carried out in early January 2020 in my garden.
The tree has a lot of growing still to do; 3 trunks have long extension growth in place to help thicken them up over the coming year or two and the primary branches will need to be grown-out to thicken them up so they have better proportion.
But this styling was about addressing that large burl and forward growing branch, as well as getting plenty of movement into the new shoots that will become thick branches in the future.
