In order to accommodate those with busy schedules during the month of June, those that attended the National Exhibition, and those that may currently be in attendance at ABS/BCI Denver we are extending the deadline until Monday, June 25th.

We need some trees for this month!  Here is a shohin hinoki cypress about 6" tall in a Sara Rayner pot.  Needs some thinning.  Tree works from both sides - this is the old back.  Other side is equally good.

Hi Everyone!

Here is a huge Black Pine that I had the privilege of De-candling a few weeks ago.  This is the photo after I de-candled and pulled some needles.  This tree belongs to Mr. Tanaka at Aichien and was collected decades ago then put in the field to grow a bit more.  The bark is pretty amazing and there is a shari feature on the left side of the trunk.  I asked Mr. Tanaka how much he's willing to sell this tree for and he said, 40,000 dollars!  LOL  I won't be buying it anytime soon.  Hahahaha,  ;D
