Shipping Info: Shipping estimates are based on FedEx Home Delivery. They are estimates, and may be adjusted up or down depending on your location.
For customers in The Dakotas, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Illinois, including Metro St Louis, I recommend Spee-Dee Delivery, which is about half, or less, of the FedEx rate.
From September through May smaller trees can ship standard post, again at about half the FedEx rate. Tools and other items can be shipped priority mail.

But which end has the pot of gold?
I took this picture after a sudden storm in Wyoming. I may have been a little too wet to truly appreciate it at the time.

Comments: Feels like an early winter is in store for the Black Hills. My friend said her beehives have quit making drones, which means they are getting ready to hibernate. I said, "I'm not ready for winter. I still haven't cleaned up from the last one." Anyway, it's a pretty busy season and I'll get new trees up as soon as I can.

Stolen Bonsai! On August 16th 2019 someone took 7 large bonsai from the widow of my friend Takuzo, who lives near Minneapolis. They also took trees from other locations nearby. Several of the trees are pictured above. If you see them for sale somewhere, or in someones collection, let us know so we can get them back!
