Scissors and knives we should sharpen, so that when cutting does not affect the tree trunks indoors. Lime I use to apply to the cut, to limit the sap secretion tree through the cut, and help the tree not be disturbed by insects, thereby helping the tree to recover quickly after being pruned.

The pruning action should be fast and light, to avoid affecting the trunk, the branches we want to keep, the leaves are healthy. In case the tree has too few leaves, we should keep a little even though it is old and yellow leaves, because the tree needs leaves for photosynthesis so let that old leaf wait until the young leaves grow onions prune old leaves. For the branches we need to position the trunk, so that when we prune it does not affect the roots of the tree.
Take care of your bonsai after pruning
