What is a Niwaki cloud Olive tree

The cloud tree is Inspired by Japanese Niwaki trees which is a style of pruning that dates  back as  early as the 1200’s in Japan. The art of cloud pruning originated in Japan as a method of training trees and shrubs into shapes resembling clouds. This highly skilled technique creates beautifully manicured trees that burst with sculptured interest. Although cloud pruning is associated with Japanese style gardens, cloud pruned specimens can be a wonderful feature in any garden.

This creative and bold method of pruning is said to represent the true essence of the tree. The Niwaki pruning method helps to integrate trees into their surroundings creating balance and harmony. Bonsai trees are much smaller, whereas Niwaki are bigger and can easily be planted in the ground. The appeal of cloud pruning is a beautifully manicured sculptured tree that doesn’t display any type of symmetry. However, a well-executed Niwaki can be highly asymmetric and beautifully balanced at the same time. So, for this reason it kind of creates its own kind of symmetry. 

As an evergreen the Olive tree provides year long colour even in winter when most of our gardens are forlorn. The sculptured form of a cloud tree will create interest and beauty when other gardens are looking lacklustre.
