Hi all,
I have been working on this juniper below, I am planing in the wek to hollow out the trunk to blend it in with the Jin.. I am still uncertain to make the whole tree into a "windswept" by jining the top apex? any suggestions? take care, Lance.

I would say not, live branches windswept one way and dead branches in the other will look contrived in my mind, at least for this one.

That is normally true for windswept bonsai. My concern with this tree, however, is that in the first photo it does not look very healthy. While it seems better in the second, I'd want a clearer pic before I could recommend continuing to work on it.
