Here's a fairly simple maintenance before and after. I found it on Mariusz Janusz Komsta's timeline. Here's Mariusz's caption... "Taxus Stavrakos - good job Stavros Stavrakis, from now it can be only better - refinement of dead wood, new pot, more density and clean trunk needed ... in the near future"

Mariusz Komsta’s caption above provides a few answers about this tree and raises at least as many questions. First, as you may know, Taxus Stavrakos is not a Yew species (though the tree is a Yew). More like a little joke on Mariuzs’a part. Second, when I followed the link provided, it does go to Stavros Stavrakis timeline, but I couldn’t find anything there about this tree

Before. An already mature well-established bonsai. A simple task to shape it up, right? Well, simple maybe for a skilled bonsai artist, but not for just anyone. There's more than meets the eye to bringing an overgrown tree back into shape

 Continued from above…
What is on Stavros’ timeline – in addition to some bonsai (some excellent trees by Bjorn, for example) and bonsai news – are some mesmerizing videos presented by some of the world’s greatest artists, philosophers and other fascinating people. Here’s just a small sample for the three of you who might care… Django Reinhardt, Bertrand Russell, John Edmark, Nassim Haramein… and for the rest of you, perhaps the strangest cat video you’ll ever see (sorry!)

After. Looking better but still a ways to go. Or to quote Mariusz (from above) “refinement of dead wood, new pot, more density and clean trunk needed … in the near future” BTW: is that what it looks like; a hole that goes all the way through the trunk?
