privet bonsai deadwood

Detail image of the deadwood at the front of the tree. Although the wood of Privet can be quite hard while it is still fresh, it deteriorates and becomes soft very quickly. This means that the wood must be treated regularly with a wood-hardener (see article) to stop it from rotting away. The deadwood on this tree has remained very stable for over a decade using these products.
