Cutting, pruning, and wiring are the three main strategy that makes the tree to become a bonsai tree. You can also choose cutting and pruning ignoring the wire-ing if you don't like it. However, the only single strategy is not enough. Wire-ing mainly helps to keep the desired shape on your bonsai. However, if you don't want to wire, then you can use a cut and grow method. Which also can help to maintain the shape also but for that, you need to have some experience with it. Don't be afraid of cutting, if you cut one; it grows in two. You need to keep some patience.

Another important thing is Bonsai soil. You have to make the bonsai soil properly. So the tree can get all its necessary nutrition from it. As you need to grow it in small size, you like to keep the tree in a small pot with a few soils. So that's why making earth is essential. As you put the tree in limited soil that makes the growth slow. However, don't worry about it. Timely fertilizing keeps the tree happy. Sometimes you also need to prune the root to keep the tree small in size.
