Bonsai tree: New Planting Angle (Plus) Equals New Tree


After. Ezo spruce bonsai by Tomohisa Fujikawa.

At first glance you might think that just changing the planting angle is the whole story here. True, it’s a big part of the story and changing the planting angle so radically and making it look so natural is no mean feat. But if you take a closer look at the before picture (below) and the after picture (above) you might notice that there’s more than first meets the eye.
Before. With a little wiring and a little trimming, you could leave it as it is and still have an exceptional bonsai.


A little creative thinking. If you mask the top of the tree (after the transformation), this is what you come up with.
