Oh boy am I excited for this! Larch has been one of my personal favorite trees. However I’ve had little luck finding decent material that wasnt ramrod straight or had a weak nebari.
Last year I lucked out and found this tree at my local bonsai nursery. I love the subtle movement in the trunk and the proportional nebari. Its a fairly young tree but the barck is developing quickly.
The weather here in new england is warming up and soon itll be set to style. I plan on chopping the trunk right where the trunk straightens out and turning one of the two branches into the new apex.
The question of corse is which one?
I originally thought of using the right branch and creating a harmonious design to the right. But the more I look, I’m liking the ramification and movement of the branch on the left. For my defining branch I plan on using the branch on the lower right.
Im not super attached to either option and would love to here what you all think.
