Notching to bend thick branches

 - (Procedure)
Notching to bend thick branches - Bonsai Procedure Bonsai Care

The branch is weakened by cutting a V-shaped wedge across it though not all of the way through the branch. Then using coiled wire, or a guy wire, the gap is pulled shut. Protect by sealing with waterproofed tape. The procedure is best performed in early spring, or in late summer during the quiescent period when there is less bleeding and less heavy callousing.
