Hi Patrik found this material little bit tricky.....but I see two options from where i am sitting.

First one, tilt and bend the third widest trunk with some movement if possible looks the skinniest if only slight this would give great movement right through.



Second option, first trunk and same foliage pattern as drawn for the first option.



Maybe some ideas,maybe...easy from here as they say,good luck and keep us posted,...cheers Anthony

Hi Patrick

If that right hand branch has enough roots underneath to support its growth then I would remove it and you have two trees for the price of one to play with.

I think that Anthony's option two is the way to go as the trunk has great movement and just grow the other branch on for a couple of seasons.

Hi Patrik
Great advice you got from JC and Anthony particularly if your keen to get it looking like a bonsai ASAP. One other option that's less fun in the short term but worth considering is to go slow. Patience is one of the best things bonsai is teaching me and if that sweet little Juniper was mine I would take my time. Just keep feeding and watering well and see what direction you might choose in a year or two. By which time it will grow and develop. You may find it worth while and also could change your mind on direction. Some juni's I have had a few years now I've changed my mind about several times but am happy I did not chop when I first got them.
Just a thought , hope it helps and doesn't confuse things more for you
Bob.
