I agree, however I am waiting for people to start nominating trees Otherwise I have to research trees myself, and quite frankly, I am busy with other work at the moment. If you have a tree that you would like to nominate because it has an interesting story, I would love to feature it.
My thoughts on this is we should have the tree be one of ours.....not someone else's.
Submit a picture of your best or favorite tree and then either Bonsai Nut or us as a group pick one. I would almost say it doesn't have to be a finished bonsai but if the tree has great potential to be a high quality bonsai then it should count. It just has to be in a box or pot of some kind, not in the ground.
What does everyone think? It is just an idea......
