I wish you had posted before you had done your pruning. It is a mistake to do any pruning before you have a plan in mind. I like the trunk but those bare branches need some lower foliage. If you can get some back-budding you will have more options. I don't have one so I'll have to do a little research for you.I would like to create a bonsai, but I don't know what style to create. It is still in its pot from Home Depot. I just cut some branches off but I need help for my next step.
