Reverse taper? No problem that a little carving can’t solve. I know it’s a Yew (Taxus), but I’m not sure which species (can’t find the original to confirm). It belongs to David Benavente.
If you’re ever in Spain…
… think about paying a visit to David Benavente’s bonsai studio. A while back we posted some photos of David’s studio/nursery. I was taken with the artistry of the display and of course, the trees. Here’s a few more trees and another display shot to whet your appetite.
Have you ever seen a display area this perfect?
Full cascade Scot’s pine. You see a lot of Scot’s pine bonsai in Europe.
Another Scot’s pine.
A very wild, Wild olive.
David Benavente; the happy bonsai artist.
