I have started a live oak forest planting from acorn. They are approximately 7 months old and 12" tall. How to begin to train this into a prebonsai then bonsai tree? I have wired them to maintain vertical growth, they were falling over due to their own weight. Do I only cut the apex of the trees and force forth to the lower branches? Do I keep cutting new growth at the apex and what time of year should this be done on the oak? Florida

I have ideas (let them grow until you have more roots) but am curious to hear from people who have done similar projects.
