International Bonsai Academy in Harrisburg #1

From December 3 to4, 2011 the second 'Winter with Walter and Jim' took place at nature's Way Nursery in Harrisburg, Pa.
We did not wire trees in general, because of the time of year, but as you will see we did serious design work. There are about 200 very good collected trees in Harrisburg at the moment. We picked the ones which needed to get to the next step.
This is a very good Rocky Mountain Juniper, Juniperus scopulorum, probably up to 1,000 years old. A team was assigned to study the tree and find options for further development. These were discussed with the whole group. Then I let the team loose on that tree. The result is remarkable, I think.
