    I would like to ask those who have knowledge, on how to plant a Bonsai and make it look like a TREE?

    What about a Pear?

    Okay, for anyone who has followed my threads knows I like to CHALLENGE you thoughts and MINDS on Bonsai.

    What about a White Oak?

    Has anybody had, have, or tried using White Oak for material? I have been training one for about 15 years now, it has a nice trunk going but I'm working on the branching and sub-branching. It's a SLOOOOOOOOOOOW process.

    White Poplar and those who dis-belive,,

    I think I've had this tree about 10 years, I got it and a few more from a Massive growth out where I work it was about a pencil thin taper at the time. I found this tree can be complicated at time, doesn't take well to pruning, like water, and could prob use almost 2 transplanting a year. They...
