One of the best ways to learn how to make our bonsai better is the progression.  In the progression, a tree is shown in a sort-of “time lapse” photographic record from its beginnings as a pre-bonsai or bonsai-in-training, all the way through to a point where the tree is showable.   I will be adding to this list as time goes on, and updating the individual progressions as needed.  I hope you find them useful in creating your own bonsai.
