Chinese Elm 001 (30/05/2009)

Source: Nursery stock

Finally got my hands on an elm with a decent trunk thickness for shohin. The only dissapointment is the lack of strong lower branches that i need for a nice sumo-style. So i guess i will be working towards a broom style. Although i feel it will be alot nicer shld i chop another 50% down in the last virtual. But the tapering will take alot of time to build up.
