This thread is about a Bosnian Pine I got at my local garden center a couple weeks ago for 40.00$. I have searched and searched for examples of this species grown as bonsai but the majority of the links I have found lead me to this first picture of Bonsai Boy's bosnian for sale, ranging in price from 49.00- 216.00$- for a stick in a pot!

The second pic is how I got my tree. It was half dead, neglected, hiding in the back lot growing in the shade of a huge cottonwood tree.

I removed all the needles and leaves from inside the pot and found this huge trunk.

Bonsai Boys beautiful bulge is full of interest.

It is true that a losing battle can be had searching for the missing 90% of Pines.

They must represent the final frontiers of Bonsai,or something.
