I recently cut back a root over rock trident maple during a live Q&A for Bonsai Empire. Here’s the tree before I got started.
And here it is after removing the leaves and cutting back the branches.
The goals of the cutback were simple:
- Replace large branches with thin branches
- Remove branches growing back toward the trunk
- Reduce long branches with little or no ramification
- Cut back to the silhouette
For details, along with general Q&A from viewers, check out the livestream here.
