Share your most developed tree (before and after)

Thought it would be fun for us to share an image of the bonsai that you personally have had development the longest followed by a picture of it when you first started working upon it. I’ll start, this is a Carpinus betulus (European Hornbeam) I dug from a now closed bonsai nursery back in winter 2007.

Looking forward to seeing your trees!

Here’s the first JBP I bought about 3 years ago. I knew nothing about them before I got this, so a steep learning curve but I think it is progressing pretty nicely. I have a few more of them now, but this one is my trailblazer.

When I first got it …

… and now …

@Ryceman3 that’s becoming a nice tree! I don’t work with pines, but that seems like some solid progress in a short time to me.
