Black Pine Needle Plucking

Bonsai Workshop

To ensure the health of the black pine, I plucked away last year needles to ensure energy is directed to the new growth. I also left several long branches as sacrificing branches at various levels. They will each help to feed the trunk, and as a result, thicken the trunk below the sacrificing branch. By having sacrificing branches at varying levels, trunk tapering can be accomplished.
