JBP styled by Ben Oki
« on: July 17, 2011, 10:10 PM »
I was given this JBP from one of my bonsai buddies who is trying to get rid of his trees cause he is going down hill in health. All i have to do is a lil work around his house. Its a 60+ year old JBP. My friend got it back in 1999 from Ben Oki who styled it. Its my first mature JBP so im a lil scared to work on this awesome tree. Ill be getting the sketch that Ben drew for this tree what he thought it should look like in the future. Point me in a good direction please and also tell me what yall think.
I think i got the pictures the right size.

Thanks for sharing those pics! I love JBP.

Those are better sizes, Buff, but it's hard to see any detail in the tree from the angles you have shown us. Do you have a plain background where you can put the tree and the camera at the same level? I'd like to see the branch structure a little better.
