A little Trident Maple root work
Trees are usually strongest when their freshly dug, and this is the best time to make drastic root reductions…while they have the best head of steam.
Here is a look at some root work.
And a little update on this one; my first attempt at a root over rock, and my first trident in a real actual bonsai pot…if you can believe it!
Now that it’s up at eye-level, I can start to think about branches, movement, and address the lack of strength I noticed in the lower root area. Most likely, I’ll put a basket around it and encourage them to thicken up more “underground”.
