Bonsai Care

A process by which young saplings are allowed to retain their lower branches for a few years in order to thicken and strengthen the trunk. These branches are then removed in stages first cutting back the lowest in half, then in the following year removing them completely and cutting back the next lowest by half. This process is repeated until the clean trunk reaches the required height and girth.
