Growing Interest in JWP
« on: January 08, 2013, 11:53 AM »
Hey Forum,

I noticed this forum has a couple of members that are greatly knowledgeable in Japanese White Pine. My interest in jwp grew as soon started studying Bonsai. In addition, I am a fan of "The Bonsai Art of Japan Episodes." I enjoyed the videos of the jwps': my favorite Therefore, I ask for your assistance to help me on my first jwp. However, I am having difficult with the very first step:getting a jwp. My club members do not have any up for sale. So you can help me start of with providing information on websites "mainly". I am also open to nurseries within ~200 mile radius of NYC.  I am also free to do any business with members on this group so feel free to offer.

Thanks nick

New England Bonsai Garden.  I think they're in Boston, or nearbouts. 

I've heard they close for the month of January, but have a nice selection of imported JWP.  They will be grafted on JBP stock.

Hi Engineer,
I too have the JWP bug.  I recently purchased a new one from NEBG.  It's an amazing tree, and I've had a few fun days and many hours working on it this winter.   I highly recommend NEBG as a source for JWP, and they really know how to ship trees with care, so no worries there.
 Here are a couple of photos of the tree. First as I received it, and the last two after thinning and wiring.  (Just as a note - I have gone back since that last photo, and turned the bud tips up, as recommended.)

I also have a much smaller tree that I got a number of years ago from Lotus Bonsai in California, and am very happy with that one as well, but this one is older and has a lot more to work with.

I checked out the online store at NEBG. I'm debating on either  http://www.nebonsai.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=NEBG&Product_Code=40JapaneseWhitePine&Category_Code=BON or http://www.nebonsai.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=NEBG&Product_Code=71JapaneseWhitePine&Category_Code=BON

Any advice?

Nice tree and good luck on it.

I'm also check out NEBonsaiGarden. If you check the reply above you can see which one I'm debating on getting.

Thanks,

If you are having difficulty deciding, don't hesitate to email them, they can put eyes on it and tell you info that a picture will never be able to tell you.  They will also take additional photos if you want them.  Great to work with.
Show us what you wind up with.
