straight trunk juniper

An attempt at a ''formal'' unpright. Juniper Blue Alps.
This tree has waited 20 odd years to get into a bonsai pot. It was in the ground for a few years then in a pot for few more then back in the ground for a few more... :palm:
This is the first wiring. For the last couple of years it was just ''hedged'' to keep it under control. Branches will no doubt be removed in the future.

:wave: Mr Treeman,
Thanks for sharing these pics.
I admire your tree a lot & your patience & hedging has paid off.
Your inspiration pic is definitely a vision worth the chase.
Look forward to seeing your decisions on branching treatment in future updates (eg complete removals or selective jin stubs)

Hi Treeman , very nice Juni , I have a soft spot for formal upright but they are tricky to get right , this has inspired me to stick with mine , mine is only 10 years in training in and out of the ground but it's making progress in the right direction .

Cheers . Alpine

Love this tree. Reminds me a lot of this fantastic spruce by Walter Pall. Interesting pot/planting idea which could work well with your tree in the future...

This thread eluded me Mike but i love this tree and your future plans for it. It will be a good "Classic" tree.
