Before and after bonsai styling by Juan Andrade. The trees are from top to bottom: Shimpaku juniper, Japanese black pine and a Needle juniper trunk with Shimpaku juniper foliage grafted on. Juan Andrade was a long term apprentice at Bonsai Aichien nursery in Japan. We’ve been following Juan’s progress for a long time (here’s a Bark post from 2012 that features a tree of his). Juan posts regularly on facebook, which is where we found these photos. MID WINTER SITE WIDE SALE 20% OFF EVERYTHING PLUS AN EXTRA 10% TO 20% OFF ROSHI TOOLS and AN EXTRA 10% OFF BONSAI POTS   This pine has a bunjin feel, but I think it’s a little too lush to qualify as bunjin. In case you are wonder what Bunjin is, there’s a pretty good discussion here. It’s not in a pot yet, but if you look at the before photo above, you can see that this Shimpaku has come a long ways in the right direction.   You might call this one a bunjin, though I’m not sure I’ve ever seen one so dominated by deadwood. 20% off Site Wide Sale PLUS YOU CAN ENJOY EXTRA DISCOUNTS IN ADDITION TO OUR SITE WIDE SALE EXTRA 10% OFF 1-2 ROSHI TOOLS 20% OFF 3 OR MORE ROSHI TOOLS PLUS AN EXTRA 10% OFF BONSAI POTS –INCLUDING OUR TIE POTS– FREE Shipping on Continental U.S. orders 75.00+ (only if you chose free shipping when you check out) STONELANTERN.COM
