19 years and Counting

It hardly seems possible but it’s been 19 years since I bought my by first trees.  I still have most of those Coastal Redwoods. I wish I had started Bonsai much earlier in Life because I know I have gotten much more out of my Trees than I have given them.

It takes dirt under your finger nails to get it.  Just like life no tree is ever finished.  As  it grows it changes.  While we can direct and form some of those changes ,we can only receive  what the tree is willing to give us. You have to handle each tree on its own.

Besides loving Bonsai I am also a professional Woodworker.  As such I  continue to work with my Bonsai trees even after they have died.  Most of my oldest trees have been grown with that in mind. We have finally started making Bonsai display pieces, we want these to blend with the tree they are displaying.

Living in the Pacific Northwest we are blessed with a great outdoors close by.  I can be on Mt Hood or at the coast in 45-75 minutes.  These areas come into play in that they let me  gather stones, small driftwood, anything I can use in my BONSAI anBURL display, and go fishing.
