    The process of creating a bonsai tree can start when a tree is a year or two old (or you can grow the desired kind of tree from seed). Up to that time, if you have chosen a tree to train as a bonsai, you can work on stunting its growth. The roots need to be pruned every two to four years, and new growth on the branches should be pruned every spring. A bonsai tree is typically planted in poor soil that drains well. They are not given much nutrients. When fertilizing, the liquid fertilizer should be diluted. Branches are shaped by wrapping them with wire and angling them as you would like them to grow. Branches can also be grafted if there is not one where desired. The website below gives more details.
