Here is my original bonsai tree that was intended and purchased as a bonsai back in 2003. I will add more progression pics later but to jump to the near finished product of 9 years of cultivation. Hope you like what you see.
**October 2012** the main thing I did during the season of 2012 was defoliation of all the leaves except the last two on the tips. This box woods response to the treatment was quick and healthy. Resulted in much smaller leaves and more newer interior branches which filled in open areas much better than before.
