Old Bristlecone pine...

hmmm... Not sure about that price for that tree... Tree 202, the common juniper is probably my favorite on the page. However, the others with training could change my mind.:)

Also, the last one, I believe 212, It says estimated age 800 years old..I don't think it's that old..I think closer to 300-400 years old maybe.
 
I find myself drooling more over #306, a ponderosa to die for!

(About what it would take, too, since I can't spare the money right now.)
 
Is it an old bristlecone pine? Andy's guess may be pretty accurate, but 125 yrs. is young for a bristlecone...

Well, yeah, but have you seen an older one in a container?:D
 
If I'm not mistaken, Andy Smith works for the Forestry Department determining age of trees for them...
He knows his stuff, and was very helpful when my buddy and I went collecting out his "neighborhood" last year.
 
i see he has a quaking aspen ..i've never seen one as bonsai,there pretty common around here,has anyone tried these as bonsai before?
 
That Quaking Aspen is interesting. As they propagate primarily from root shoots, I wonder how he was able to collect this with sufficient rootage. They do produce seed, but from what I understand this happens very infrequently - like every 10-15 years or so.:confused:
