Juniper Bonsai Before & After – Cleanup Day

Before and after on cleanup day. It's a Tam juniper (Juniperus sabina ‘Tamariscifolia') that belongs to Michael Hagedorn.

It’s finally sunny after interminable and often torrential rains, so it’s time to dig back into our archives so we can get outside asap. This post originally appeared almost exactly a year ago to the day.

Here’s copy about the tree shown above that I lifted from Michael Horndorn’s Crataegus Bonsai: “The day these photos were taken was a basic ‘clean up day’ for the juniper—no wire was applied, removing only old and dangling foliage and shortening shoots that were overlong, and also sanding the bark, cleaning deadwood, and applying lime sulfur. This is yearly work on any juniper.

TamIt's a little hard to fathom that the tree above is the exact same variety as this low growing clump... but it is.  Here's Michael's copy for this photo: "Tam Juniper, is a commonly planted conifer for foundations and gardens. The foliage grows upright from the branch, giving it a sprightly appearance."
