    Styling Advise on an Unknown Collected Juniper

    First, yes, I know that the foliage isn't good. Please ignore the color for now. I haven't decided what I am going to do about that yet. I collected this Juniper a couple years ago now and have yet to figure out what to do with it. That probably tells me everything I need to know but I'm not...

I have done only some basic clean up on them and have yet to do much in terms of styling them. I need some guidance as to how they should be...

    Tree Identification

    Anyone know what species this is? It was collected by someone in our local Bonsai Society years ago and has changed hands a couple times now. Also, ideas on pinching and/or pruning so that I can try to prevent this browning on the inner growth? Thanks for any advice in advance. - Boise_Guy

    Kingsville given to me, Ideas?

    Club member gave this to me. He's moving and needed to thin out his collection. Wanted to know ideas on the front, angle of tree, pot and anything else you would suggest with this tree. Thanks, Mike

    Critique and Style advice wanted for JBP

    Hi All, I am relatively new to the forum and just diving back into bonsai after a 10 year hiatus. I didn't want to start completely fresh again so I dove in head first and bought this Japanese Black Pine. Now that I have it, and have had a chance to really look at it, it seems too textbook...
