Getting my trim on! A subject that can not be covered enough.


A you can see with this lovely warm summer days comes rapid growing foliage. During these fast growing periods it’s good to keep you hand on the excess growth of the trees and to remove them weekly. This is very important as the more foliage you allow on the tree the more water the tree uses. If the tree has a lot of foliage you will find that the leaves of a tree will weep much easier in this heat.

Before I show you all the trees that I trimmed I want to explain how and where to trim different tree species. There are too many leave types to describe them all in one blog so I divided them into the two most commonly used as bonsai:

  1. Bold leaf trees
  2. Conifer or Needle trees
