Leisure / Hobbies / The Art of Tree Care


Creating and maintain bonsai trees is one of the most ageless of all the arts, for the simple reason that this particular art has withstood the test of time. The unique qualities of these tiny trees have captured the hearts and imaginations of people across cultures, and the very techniques of growing bonsai trees have also been taught through print and actual practice.

Bonsais are charming, miniaturized versions of regular trees. They are carefully tended over a period of years so that the artist can achieve his unique vision of what the tree should look like.

Creating a bonsai tree from seed is possible, although many bonsai artists agree that this is a very laborious route, so many prefer digging up seedling trees in the forest, or modifying young tree stocks from nurseries. Maintaining a bonsai is really easy and doesn’t require a lot of special skills. As long as you know the basics, you won’t have a lot of trouble maintaining one or two at home.

People who eventually engage in the art of bonsai understand that true beauty takes time and lots of patience. Bonsai art is not like other forms of art – it takes a lot of time, and there is always a risk of the subject (the bonsai tree) dying because of poor care. This is not to dissuade anyone from trying the art, but rather it is a reminder that if you want your tree plant to last longer, you should also learn how to take care of it properly.

Bonsai Tree Meaning

What is the meaning of growing a bonsai tree? What makes bonsai trees so attractive? In order to understand why countless people find these unique trees so irresistible, we must “take apart” the various visual elements that people see whenever a bonsai work of art is displayed.

The main element that really makes a bonsai tree stand out is its trunk. The trunk is the most striking element, because a bonsai artist can wire a trunk so that it curves gently to the left/right, giving the impression that the tree has been around for many years and it is slowly bending to the weight of its woody branches and dense foliage.

The second thing that people “see,” but are usually not aware of, is the triangular configuration of the branches and leaves. Experienced bonsai artists tend to increase the volume of foliage in the upper branches, but at the same time they also widen the “reach” of the lower branches to give the viewer an impression of a triangle.

Obviously, the top of the tree is the apex, and the lower branches form the base of the triangular configuration. This configuration is very important, because on the forest floor, trees need to develop branches and foliage this way to compete for sunlight.

People also pay attention to branch placement and branch positioning when they are admiring these special asian style trees. Again, people rarely know what to look for, but through subconscious comparison with natural trees, they are able to appreciate the hard work that the bonsai artist has put into a single bonsai tree.
