Styling a Japanese Dwarf Juniper

Well it has been an incredibly busy Spring, here’s a little glimpse of some trees we’ve been working on! This Japanese Dwarf Juniper was grown originally as a garden tree and is around 20 years old.

Here the tree is without anything done to it, it was placed in a larger grow pot to let it recover after it was removed from its last home.


Here it is after excessive branches were pruned away and the shari (or deadwood on the trunk) has been roughly carved for now just to see where the live wood is.



Here’s the Japanese Dwarf Juniper after the whole tree was styled. Before I styled the tree I saw another angle I liked better so that’s why the pot is tilted. This side shows the shari better and makes the tree feel more inviting.
