What is it?

By winding suitable wire around branches or even the trunk of the tree, it is possible for the bonsai artist to create bends which are pleasing to the form of the tree. When the wire is removed some weeks or even months later, the shaped area will remain in that form.

The best time to wire deciduous is in late spring through autumn. Evergreens such as pines and junipers are best wired in winter.

Annealed copper wire is best for evergreens due to its superior holding power. However the material of choice for deciduous is anodized aluminium wire.

Other uses

  • Guy wiring - Wire is anchored at two points, one on the branch and the other at some other strategic point. The wire is tightened and tightened until the desired curve is achieved.
  • Fix drainage mesh - ensures it does not move when the tree and growing medium is placed into it.
  • Securing a tree - freshly repotted trees need to be secured into the pot.

Great value for money

I am very pleased with the product! The shipping was quick and it arrived in no time. It is great value for money and holds the small branches as well as I'd hoped. I would definitely recommend Bonsai Tree and this product, and will be sure to order from them again.

an unexpected twist

i like to reuse my wire, and there is a trick where you pull the ends together and pull it away fast to straighten thinner wire and i took a piece and played with it and it took sometime to break. so i am happy that i can reuse it a few times before having to throw it away, just showing how good quality this product actually is.

Excellent value

Totally wasn't expecting to get such a long, long piece of wire - very nice. Pliable, easy to use, and my tree is looking far more balanced thanks to this product. I was quite daunted at buying wire because I imagined it being overly expensive, but this stuff is amazing and affordable. My tree and I are very happy campers!

More than expected

I actually weighed the roll of wire and it came to 102 grams so there is no short cuts with this product , it works like a dream, and it is cost effective. I will definetly be buying the full range of gauges in due time.
