Saw this little larch up for grabs and loved the trunk thickness and can imagine the main leader fitting nicely after a bit of work making the transition from the main trunk smoother.

I was given this tree as a present about 3 years ago. It was supposedly a 3 year old bonsai from a mail order company. After removing about 20 cm from the top and some heavy thinning out some root training then repotting i was left with this.
