Lord of the forest, make no mistake!

I have a lot of trees that are fairly large and would be difficult to ship. I'm going to start posting some of them here. Some could be niwaki (garden) trees, or potted patio trees, or  big bonsai. Although most can be shipped (average cost would be around $400), they could also be delivered to a show or picked up here. Terms would be 50% to hold the tree and 50% on delivery. Heights do not include the pot.

My friend, the snake.

I pulled this tree off a timber sale years ago. The root system was not ideal for bonsai but it wasn't going to be there much longer so I gave it a try. It's always been vigorous but I'm still working on getting it centered in a reasonable pot.
