bonsai general - 25 views



A preview of some conifers Yamadori trees in line styling in the next couple of years in Crataegus Bonsai. Trees are courtesy of backcountry Bonsai collection duo Steve and Dan Varland Wiederrecht. These six trees are Rocky Mountain juniper and ponderosa pines, although Steve and Dan also collect Limber pine, lodgepole pine, spruce, and fir. They are very careful and considerate collectors.

They also have some good stories about collecting … once there was a mountain lion keep an eye on them in the mountains before they were collected. These trees come with a lot of physical and other types of sweating.

You can find them, their trees, and mountain lion story on its website
