I wonder if he'll have to sell his own trees to pay for his fines. lol -- assuming, of course, that his collection is more than just stolen trees.

I am pretty impressed that he was caught so quickly. Glad that it happened that way so the health of the bonsai does not suffer. I am sure the owner is breathing a sigh of relief right now.

Tom,
Did they ever catch the person who robbed the Bonsai place in Bellingham?

I don't think so, not that I have heard. Maybe John romano will see this and chime in.

He may have had some ill conceived plan to borrow the assemblage so as to improve it before it's safe return.

Remorse is fairly alien to America so how would the jury recognise such an emotion?

WHAT???!!!! :eek::eek::eek:

Look at him. Obviously he has some issues. I know stealing is wrong but if the tree is unharmed I hope they don't do what was suggested by one of the member - Trunk chop him.

HELL
they could wire him straight... bad pun intended !!!
or graft him onto better stock ???

Glad he's caught, before he made a lucrative business out of it...
hope trees turn out ok ...

Gee, gotta love English superiority. How are those riots coming?
