Niwaki Cloud Pruning
A pruning technique from Japan where trees play a key role in the gardens and landscapes as well as being of important spiritual and cultural significance to people. Niwaki pruning is often performed to achieve some very striking effects.
I am able to offer a Niwaki Pruning service after being trained in formative styles described in Western countries as Cloud Pruning.
Although Niwaki formative styles are normally applied to young trees, some mature plants can be pruned and trained with some Niwaki techniques in order to achieve some playfull effects in a garden.
You may also find appealing to choose a nursery stock plant that I can train in cloud pruning style for you. I keep a stock of plants going through such process.
