President's Message

Another month has arrived, summer approaches, trees are budding and our active growing season is in full bloom. We have many opportunities for tree improvement; such as, grafting, air layering, and shaping to name a few. There are many resources for these and many other techniques. A great deal of information is available here on our website. Many resource books on nurturing bonsai can be found in book stores as such as those mentioned in articles on this site. The greatest resource is to utilize the many years of experience available within a local bonsai group. The first question we often ask new members is “are you experienced with bonsai”?  We often jokingly ask, “how many trees have you killed?” Not asked to be inconsiderate, but we must understand the work we perform on these trees can be very stressful and trees will sometimes be lost.  Enjoy this wonderful art, join a local bonsai group and learn from their mistakes, and their many years of accumulated experience.
