    New term for American bonsai

    Instead of changing the name, let's change the material we use to all native trees! That's American Bonsai. I don't see the Japanese importing our species. More pioneers are needed to search out the trees growing on our lands and figure out how to "bonsai them".

    Beech collecting (Fagus grandifolia)

    In my quest to acquire all native material, I've come across a question. I guess this pertains to most deciduous but my question is geared towards Fagus grandifolia in particular. (1.) When collecting, is it more advantageous to leave most foliage on at collection, let the tree gain strength...

    Inconsistent notifications

    Yes, it seems like it only notifies you a certain amount of time after. Always wondered about this as well.

    Something sweet!

    I agree, we need more natives! These would definitely lend themselves to a larger bonsai due to leaf size, but to be honest I'd be more interested in the fall color and winter silhouette than anything.

    To chop or not to chop..

    I like the elegant lines of this hornbeam and don't mind a tall thin tree, but does this need a chop down to that first branch? What say you?

    Something sweet!

    I collected this sugar maple from our sugar grove this spring. I know these don't make ideal bonsai but to me it's worth a try. I admire all the large trees that give us so much sap every year and I'd like to try and emulate one. I have a few others as well but I like the curves on this one!

    American Beech Collection

    Hopefully this doesn't spread to your other beech. I sure do wish they would figure this out so we know what we are dealing with, very interesting disease for sure.
