In one of the other threads someone mentioned the price paid for a quality shohin. After that I believe someone stated that the price you pay for a tree and whether or not you got a good deal, is what you think the tree is worth. I believe those were the words anyway.
Well here's some prices paid by various individuals over the past few months for some quality JBP. shohin.
#1: $750
#2: $600
#3: $550
#4: $650

Had you and I been friends with you willing to take payments, I may have bought some or all of those, lol.

Hey Chris,
We can still be friends,:D but these trees weren't mine, I was just helping the owner sell them since he doesn't frequent the forums at all.;)

I am beginning to think he is the wiser among us.

Thanks Thomas. I find these prices to reflect well the development of the trees shown.

I am dead serious. With the mortgage market the way it is right now, that's the only way I can afford trees like these. Remember the heading on my post in the shohin forum.

Some great examples. If you think about the time put into some of these trees, it might not break down to that much $/hr. The first one (the JBP) is my favorite, though they are all inspiring.

Really? This one is my favorite.



I am wondering about the photo angle, though. It's possible that this is the best possible planting angle, but I would like to see others. In fact, I might be interested in purchasing this tree (don't worry, I won't ask you to finance it.)

They are all really nice so it is hard to choose. The reason why I like the first one is the trunk line and branch structure. I don't like really squat shohin pine bonsai because often the needles obscure the trunk. However I also appreciate that the squat ones are more difficult to develop and therefore command higher prices because of the time invested.
