Does anybody have any info on collecting California Juniper??? Is there anyone in the area (Los Angeles) still going collecting? Are any of the Bonsai clubs still having trips? This is the time, just after the rains. It would be great to find some locals who are going...
thanks, Dan

Dan,

If you live in So Cal, you can meet people who are collecting by getting in contact with Harry Hirao. Also, Kofu Kai has several young guys who are collecting.

Being in Pasadena I hope you are able to make the Bonsai-a-thon this weekend at the Huntington Gardens. I am coming down on Friday to go shopping. I will be there all day Sat. and have State Board meetings all day Sun. I will also have a tree in the display this year.


Would like to meet up with you. Will have a name tag on so look me up. I will introduce you to many diggers down there. Most of the BLM land is closed currently due to windmill additions, but there are private lands.

Ohhhhhh... I want to go to the Huntington. This weekend will be tough due to conflicts with two birthdays in my family. Last show I was there for was about 10 years ago...
