I have been growing a tree for about a year now. I believe I am ready to cut my first branch. I would like to take the whole branch off right up to the trunk so as the tree grows it looks like there never was a branch there to begin with. Now what ways would you go about doing this.
I keep the plant outdoors right now. It is bright and sunny where I am and my bonzai seems to be thriving at the moment. I would just like to hear some opinions on how I should go about pruning a actual branch one centimeter in diameter. I want to minimize the trauma to my bonzai.
