The forest style of bonsai, also known as Yose-ue in Japanese, is a popular and creative way of displaying multiple trees in a single pot. The trees are arranged to create the illusion of a natural forest, with varying distances, heights and thicknesses of the trunks. The forest style can be applied to different types of trees, such as pines, maples or satsuki, but they should be of the same species to maintain harmony. The number of trees in a forest bonsai should be odd, unless there are more than 15 trees, in which case it is not so important. The forest style bonsai captures the beauty and diversity of nature in a miniature landscape.
