    Mt. Hemlock with Browning Tips?!

    Can’t believe I’m asking for help so soon but here we are. I purchased this tree at auction 2 weeks ago. According to the auction blurb: “collected by Anton Nihuis many yrs ago. Made full and strong by John Eads of Left Coast Bonsai for new owner to style.” It’s gorgeous. I have done nothing to...

    Yamadori Mt Hemlock (Tsuga mertensiana) No. 1 The Twins

    Made a connection to acquire two Mt Hemlock groups. Both dug in the alpine areas somewhere outside Mt. Rainer park boundaries. Here’s the first, more straightforward project. (The other is more complex.) Two trunks and at least one seedling together. Height of the tallest twin 41”. Any...

    First Styling

    Here she is after her first styling in the early fall of 2020. It took me three days but I'm really happy with the results. This was my first time using copper wire (thanks Mirai!)

    Tsuga mertensiana (mountain hemlock)

    April 2014 Purchased for $49.99 in a 10-gallon nursery pot. I’m planning to develop this into a formal upright. March 2015 I had wired most branches slightly downward in 2014 and started on some major branch selection. April 2015 The branches make nice foliage pads with prolific...
