Hasami-zukuri is a Japanese term that literally means scissors work. It is a technique of shaping bonsai trees only by pruning with scissors, without relying on the use of wires. This method is said to create a more natural look and to bring out the quality of the tree branches according to the age of the tree. Hasami-zukuri is often used for deciduous trees that have thin branches and delicate foliage.
