Deadwood on a bonsai tree refers to the parts of the tree that have died or been intentionally killed, such as branches, twigs, or roots. Deadwood can be used to create artistic effects, such as simulating age, damage, or natural conditions. Deadwood can also enhance the contrast and texture of the living parts of the tree. However, deadwood also requires special care and maintenance, such as applying preservatives, carving, or wiring, to prevent rotting or infection.
