Index name for collection: Tree #14

Tree Species: Chinese Juniper - Juniperus chinensis (Note: this is just a guess as to the exact type of Juniper)

Style: Literati

History:
Obtained as part of SBBK monthly meeting which was more of a workshop (Wednesday March 25, 2015). $40 (fundraiser) for the tree. There were over ten from an area bonsai nursery; pre-bonsai with a lot of shape. $10 (fundraiser, $1/foot) for wire bought and not brought. We broke up into groups and each group had an experienced person guiding. In the Oct 2015 meeting we'll do a re-potting and will get pots also included in the $40 cost. Also the club photographed the trees before and after.
(How old were the trees already?) (What nursery?)

Training::
March 2015: Removed down facing branches, tried to create elegant alternating single branch foliage triangular pads, wired in some more bends onto the few straights, created some 'jin'.
April 2019: Repoted to smaller oval; groomed; some small wiring.
