Kirimodoshi is a technique for cutting back branches in bonsai. It is used to reduce the length of branches, improve the shape of the tree, and promote new growth. Kirimodoshi is also used in propagation of plants by cuttings and grafting, where a branch to be used for rooting is cut diagonally at the base once and on the opposite side to create a V-shaped wedge.
