Inspiring!! Does anyone know if the stump gets treated with anything first? Or is it as nature intended?

It appears to have been a long wait for him to come in and answer the questions hahahaha although it doesn't surprise me as he would be too busy playing with his trees rather than philophising over them.

Here is an update of this tree that was taken today at Sir Rics:

Here's hoping he will come in and post in this thread, after all it is his tree.

Cheers

I can't believe I did not see the 360 till now !! Great technology/photo .
The eucalypt timber has been treated with lime sulphur .
The Shimpaku used were 4 air-layers so had many fine feeder roots ,easy to pack in tight around the wood and were secured by tech screws into the wood. The work was done in quick time by me as a demonstration at a Bonsai Society of Australia meeting in 2000 .

sorry it took me so long

Cheers

Sorry Pup and others - this one snuck up on me and I will now try to answer some of the asks.
It was created in a demo for the Bonsai Society of Australia at one of their monthly club nights. As a base I used a piece of Mallee not pre treated except to fix with epoxy, three offcuts of 6mm aluminium wire into the base to be an adjustable stable element.
Four long Shimpaku trees grown by aerial layer (for the compact root mass) were used and secured to the deadwood with chipboard screws.
The placement of the live trunks with some, their red bark in full view is entirely deliberate in an attempt to integrate the live and Gin elements in harmony.
To help preserve the wood I have used Earl's wood hardener and used some artist's acrylic paints instead of lime sulphur.
I think its about twelve years since I made it but BSA might be able to clarify on this.
Cheers

It is a very nice Tanuki mate from what is shown here it has weathered very well indeed.

Thank you for that RIC and Steven.

Thanks to Elmar I see in an old post it is now about fifteen years since I made this tree Tempus fugit!! Looks as if I did use some lime sulphur but the Earl's and paint is the current fix.
