It might make a nice clump style.
Every tree has potential..
The real question is how long will it take to do what kind of work to make it tell a true story.
Just start doing the work and if you find a better one...
See I see things differently...every tree could be a bonsai. But not every tree SHOULD be.
After care since it's not really the window of opportunity to collect right now. You might learn something from the species if nothing else.
I my area we call this a "Leverite".
Leverite where you found it.....
Well said source makes a lot of sense I will definitely do that I've been collecting a few trees and see what happens it's just my vision isn't there I'm quite new at this just wondering from a more experienced folks like you and others thanks!
I've come to the conclusion this just isn't true.
Like that monstrous elm clump I collected a couple years ago.
It's never going to be a bonsai. It's too weird to lend itself to looking like an actual tree. Or clump of trees.
This tree might be more of the same. It seems like maybe but when you get right down to it what can be done with it.
As for that elm?
I'm planting it in the ground next weekend and use it for an air layer factory in a couple years.
Frary This is my thinking might keep it in pot for a few weeks or month to recover so I can keep it in the shade and I probably will plant it somewhere in my yard see what develops and just do a airlayer later down the line
You may be able to just keep it in a bucket and dismantle it from there. But if it's in the ground it'll get fatter faster for juicier layers.
You see....that IS its potential!
If it's a tree I dont have and want....
I'll grab it knowing I can at least airlayer A part for free....rather than buying a $35 sapling of the same tree....with a shitty Nebari.
Some things may equate to a waste of time....
(like elm seedlings in a yard with an elm)
But there is always potential.
Grab it if you don't have it!
Unless your trump....then dont grab it!
For future reference: never collect a tree unless you've got a plan for it. Collecting without an actual styling plan just doesn't work.
Yes, a clump style seems a very good option.
With love ("Amour" in French, not to be confused the the river "Amur"), I'm pretty sure that you can make it a very good bonsai, Amir. Er, Elyah.
Just leave it in the pot and wait until winter to decide once you see it without leaves.
When it's dry enough, you can use it in the fireplace, it doesn't "explode" like fir wood.
Ok, honest opinion...it' s crap. Crap has potential if you live forever. Practice on something that is better...like a Japanese maple.
