A Wild Tree (Yamadori) Becomes a Bonsai

In Japanese, yamadori means “mountain tree”.

The term has taken on a slightly different meaning which is a tree that has been collected from the wild. A new term has begun to appear in more recent times, namely “urban yamadori” which means a tree dug up which has been created from a garden.

When it was first dug in 1995 and later trained, the nebari or root flare was very ugly and one sided, so a few years ago it was air-layered to give a more balanced root spread. I’m delighted to say with some tender loving care, this has worked well and the tree bears smallish leaves year after year.
