Itoigawa Shimpaku, import, bought it a number of years ago. Was a very simple prebonsai with limited branch development. Tree was allowed to grow for 5-6  years, occasionally lightly wired and pruned. Styled in January, I have long thought that compressing it was the way to go. So, put the jack on it with Boon, and voila compressesed. It is about 7.5 inches tall.
