Trees for Bonsai
200. Tree # 200P157. Species: Ponderosa pine. Estimated age: 125 years. Collected 5/18. Price: $450. Estimated shipping: $175. Comments: A cool old tree.
I've heard that the arches in a medeival cathedral are meant to feel like a forest arching overhead. This is one we got to go into in Belgium. I tried, but I didn't feel like I was in a forest. But it was inspiring.
201. Tree # 201J22. Species: Rocky Mt juniper. Estimated age: 100 years. Collected: 5/14. Price: $925. Estimated shipping: $60. Comments: A perfectly sized juniper in a Sara Raynor pot.
204. An ancient and massive Colorado spruce. This one was not collectable. However, my experience with Colorado spruce convinces me that they are one of the easiest western conifers to transplant.
202. Tree # 202S27. Species: Black Hills spruce.
Estimated age: 50 years.
Collected 10/16. Price: $225. Estimated shipping: $100.
Comments: Before and after photos. As it fills out it will get better and better. I especially like this tree because the roots are clasping a flat rock -a natural mud man hangout!
205. Tree # 205P161. Species: Ponderosa pine.
Estimated age: 60 years.
Shipping: $100. Comments: What else? A literati pine!
206. Here's an old ponderosa pine and a juniper in my friend Ron's garden. He doesn't wire the branches for styling, but uses the more traditional method of hanging stones on the branches and letting gravity do it's ceaseless work.
207. Tree # 207N32. Species: Serbian spruce pair. Estimated age: 10 years. Nursery 2016. Price: $100. Estimated shipping: $60. Comments: A nice pair of spruce.
208. Tree # 208S33. Species: Colorado spruce. Estimated age: 150 years. Collected 6/18. Price: $775. Estimated shipping: $200. Comments: Stout and muscular! Great potential in an old spruce.
