Over the years, many efforts have been made to classify bonsai trees, with those suggested usually attempting to resemble styles created by nature. The basic Japanese tree forms have evolved as a way of categorising bonsai and also helping to establish basic guidelines for styling trees. Styles are usually grouped based on different criteria, such as the trunk orientation or the number of trunks in the bonsai specimen.
These styles are open to personal interpretation and creativity, meaning that trees do not necessarily need to conform to any specific category. However, to be able to classify them gives you the basis for understanding the shapes and should serve as guidelines for you to train your trees successfully.
