I am new here but I just would like to share my positive experience with Mr. Blackmond. I just recently had the pleasure of visiting Dons collection two weeks ago. I had contacted Don about purchasing a new number one tree and a few additional seedlings to improve my trident maple grove. Don spent a lot of time letting me root around his trees to find the right ones and also to show me the rest of his trees for me only spending a small amount of money for what I purchased. I will be going back in the future and I hope others will do the same as I thing GBB is a top notch and reasonably priced bonsai nursery.

Yes I have found him to be one of the good guys as well. I'm with Judy. You have to show us your tree.

I haven't bought any trees from him but I did buy an excellent pair of 11inch concave cutters from him and everything about that experience was positive

I hate to say it but I have a real problem with Don Blackmond and Gregory Beach Bonsai. Every time I visit Gregory Beach one or 2 trees somehow make it into my car and often times a couple of pots jump in also. Beware!

I agree, Don's a great guy. And he has some of the nicest trees around.

Wow, just checked out his site, and, out of curiosity, clicked to see his "Over $3000" trees. There's a Bald Cypress there that was priced at $32,000, and it's on hold. Holy mother of bonsai. This is really a serious hobby :cool:

Lol!... It sure is. I don't know what Dons reasons are for the pricing (it may simply be worth that much), but personally, I know that some of my trees will be trees with a "I don't really want to sell this one... but if I were to..." price. This tree is obviously worth $32k to him and someone else. :)
