Kataeda

This represents the concentration of branches of a trunk on one side while branches are scanty on the other side. It also means branches are out only on one side of a trunk. This phenomenon is often seen in a windswept bonsai style. Kataeda in a curved upright trunk and general trunks is prone to lose grace in many cases because the tree shape lacks harmony and is conspicuously unnatural in appearance. A tree with such a distinctive feature is called ''kataedaki,'' literally one branch tree.
