Bonsai Styles: Windswept Style

The 'story' that a windswept tree tells is that of a tree on a mountain or cliff, the tree has been buffeted by strong winds and only those branches on the leaward (downwind) side have survived.

The trunk should always be at an angle, never upright and may indeed cascade

The branches on a windswept tree must all flow in the same direction

The real thing. 1984 on the Isle of Eigg , one of the Hebridean Islands. Even those branches growing into the wind are affected.
