I know, thanks for sharing!
Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for sharing!And a tree that I have just acquired that Don Blackmond dug a couple years ago, this is an enormous crabapple. Going to be a long term fun project. The left trunk is actually root connected. I'll probably keep and use all the trunks. Sergio made me a great sketch for development idea, I'd only planned on keeping the main and right, but I like his idea for keeping all 3.

Thanks for the compliment!I must add, Sawgrass, that your photography on the bald cypress and the bouggies is simply great. Kudos!
It flowers (pinkish white) and fruits every year well--my pictures are a mess and I don't know if I have pics of it in flower. This specific HS is of stable genetics and seems to persist in a pot pretty fine and I have had it for a long time.Thanks for sharing!
This tree has some really cool movement!
Has it flowered for you? If so, any pics?
Thanks for sharing!Here you go Stacy,
a true yamadori.
Found holding on for life, by one or two long roots, and being pulled into the water, by the high tide.
Oh, I should mention quite a few of these images are older shots from 2 or 3 or 5 years ago.
Presently, this tree is in the growing trough, to see about healing some damaged areas.
Seagrape, age ?
Usually has about 80 leaves.
Testing new technique to see about getting 160 to 240 leaves. Higher leaf density and more of how we see the Seagrape as a tree.

Thanks for sharing!Conifers are certainly not all that matters. Beautiful bonsai is what matters.
Someone asked about Russian Olive as bonsai earlier in this thread; I haven't had this one very long, but I think they are very promising bonsai candidates.
This is a Russian Olive (Elaeagnus Angustifolia), that I dug this spring. The first picture is just over two months after collection. The second picture is less than one month after that!
This one is a Quaking Aspen (Populus tremuloides), chewed on by beavers over multiple years.
I would be interested in your thoughts as to what a true Yamadori actually is? I would also be interested in why you would throw down a sort of challenge or submit a critique but refuse to post your own evidence as to what is or is not true Yamadori?I will not be posting. Though I have numerous collected non-coniferous trees, I have yet to uncover true "Yamadori".
