did some trunk refinement work on one of the for sale collected purple bougainvillea. this stump measures 8 inches wide at soil line and 17 inches in height to the highest point on the trunk. the objective was to improve appearance/movement, to remove superfluous distractions and create taper. the tree was also repotted into a much smaller pot. the first two pictures are "befores" followed by "afters". the appearance has improved. the future is easy to see.

best wishes, sam

we're finding most folks want some trunk work done - as opposed to purchasing a stock stump . this is a more expensive option, but appealing, especially to those lacking experience. hearing the buyers, we have begun work on some of the trunks. the alterations are roughed in, leaving lots of leeway to the customer . some examples follow. the third through the eighth pictures show a progression from stock stump to modified for bonsai development.
best wishes, sam
