The unique Swamp Cypress Bonsai

Field grown material such as this Swamp Cypress are often grown quite tall in the field to allow their trunks to thicken quickly. When these tress are finally removed from the ground to be cultivated as Bonsai, they are chopped back down which often results in big flat cuts and scars. Rather than seeing this as a negative, you can use your imagination to create something quite special with carving techniques.
