|Windswept, with the typical branch arrangement blowing to one side. Conform the outline in a triangle.|
|Branches are extremely forced by wind. Indicate by bending branches at the base.|
|Straight trunk style with only the branches forced by the wind. Some branches are formed into a JIN.|
|MOYOGI style, showing a moderate windswept by indicating branches on one side longer than the other.|
|A branch crossing the bent trunk is another exaggerated form of windswept style.|
The windswept style is also a good example of trees that must struggle to survive. The branches as well as the trunk grow to one side as though the wind has been blowing the tree constantly in one direction. The branches grow out on all sides of the trunk but will all eventually be bent to one side.
