This tree is TWISTED! Every part of this tree seems to be twisted in a counterclockwise direction. It appears to have green wires wrapped around the branches much like copper wire on bonsai trained plants. 'Rasen Sugi' is noticed by everyone and purchased by just about all who see it. Our tree is 10 ft. tall and has only been the ground for 4 years, so it will be a large tree eventually that you will need to have the space for. Unusual and rare! Note: now our tree is 10 years old and is 25 ft tall, but only about 5 ft wide.
