is fun to see where they come bonsai. Journeys trees made from seeds, layer, graft, cutting or collection point can be subtle or dramatic. Rapid or dramatic changes are very interesting, but continuous improvement is no less important a role in creating bonsai.

Following the story of a tree can also be informative. People who have been working for a while can see how others approach similar work, and people with less experience may be able to take a look at what you’re getting into when they bring home tree.
