I ran across this by accident, thought I’d share with the class. It’s a good video on root pruning and trunk development of plums and maples.

Yep. I liked this a lot too. I wish more growers and hobbyists understood these practices. The vast majority of bonsai developed and sold in the US have really bad rootage /nebari. Finding a tree with really great rootage here is so rare. Seems like most of us don’t understand how to treat the roots which are the foundation of our trees. I hope folks watch this and can appreciate how quickly this guy works and how drastically improved his stock is compared to what’s typically available in the US where roots seem to be an afterthought.
Thanks for sharing this!

I follow the Bonsai Q Youtube channel and it has lots of very nice and informative videos.
