Nice healthy foliage.

[/x_text][x_text]Below we can see new interior foliage, this is the good stuff, allowing us to cut back outer foliage and get a denser tree.[/x_text][x_image type=”none” src=”http://adrianbirdbonsai.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/05_literati_juniper_before_2017.jpg” alt=”” link=”false” href=”#” title=”” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=””][x_text]

A future foliage pad.

[/x_text][x_text]Below is the tree after a complete thinning and re-wire. The left side is still lacking somewhat but we’ll get it evened up with the right side pretty soon… Apex needs more foliage to the rear also.
