I placed a cutting without any branches on top .All the branches but two grew where I didn't want them . I'm going to make some thread Grafts on it in the future. I didn't really put any bends to the branches without ramification  after wiring . I'm going to wait till they back bud.

Hi everyone , I hope all is well . I have this ficus that needed a new Apex and a little bit of wire . I took a few  screen shots of the tree. I'll make sure to take proper pictures for you guys and girls. I picked up filming as a hobby and I decided to start documenting my trees and hobbies. I had to record my  Bonsai it's the hobby I enjoy most . But it all started on the forum so I want to keep this going . So here's a few pics I'll take proper pics of the progression for you guys .

I noticed I wasn't the only one that hasn't been on the forum.  I hope everyone is well. I shouted out the BSG forum on my first YouTube video. I had to you guys were really nice to me. I was on here with any ol container with a  tree in it . I just want to say thank you to everyone . I used to read through all the forums undercover and I noticed some people were mean and that can turn people away from the art or the platform. It wasn't like that here.

I love these cedar stumps .I have em in fish tanks as bonsai. I have epyphytes on them . They're great at resisting rot . I didn't treat mine and it hasn't rotted at all just the little bit of bark . In it's first year.

Hi everyone I've been caught up in everyday things for a couple of years .But I've been slowing things down again. I lost a few trees and pre bonsai projects but I still have a few. I also started a few new projects . My hobbies have grown in the past few years. Bonsai is not one of my  hobbies It's a part of my life. Bonsai gave me a new outlook on life . So I'm gonna keep it going and stay in the community. I started a YouTube channel two weeks ago. It's been on my mind everyday for years. So I tried it . I'm only 3videos into it .My first video was a little long because I was introducing myself. The audio was bad too. But the content was good . I also made a video for This Ficus root over deadwood. It's finally gonna grow it's canopy out . I got the roots done already they just need to thicken up. I

Evergreen Bonsai Discussion / Re: Overwintering cold frame management
« Last post by snipologist on February 25, 2019, 10:16 PM »
I also live in zone 5a and use a cold frame for some trees.  My frame is 4' x 4' and goes 2' deep into the ground.  It is the winter home of my cedar elm, a couple California redwoods, pomegranate, Catlin elm, azaleas, blue Atlas cedar, some small accents , and other things.  None of these would survive winter outdoors in my zone.  I open the lid when the temperature is above 40 degrees.  Usually there is a lot of humidity in it but it dries some when I open the lid.  The only problem I have had is flooding during rapid snow melt or early spring storms.  So far no trees have ever "drowned" but it is scary to see it flooded to the top.

Most people who use a cold frame are trying to keep trees warm.  IMHO this is a mistake and could leave the trees vulnerable to early growth followed by late freezes.  These are the conditions that kill trees.

Rubber snake next to the pigeon's target tree?
Looked in my backyard last year and counted 6-7 different bird species rifling through the soil!!!
Not much you can do really, trying to connect with nature, not kill it!!!
Good luck and good health.
