Lately, it seems, a few have been returned after being publicized. Good luck.

Moving to Announcements.

Hi Alex,

if i get any calls or offers for me to buy trees that make me suspicious i'll do my best to get any details i can m8. The last tree taken from a SW country show turned up for sale in Manchester i think - are there pictures of the other trees though ? without them it will be hard to know if any trees for sale are from this batch

best wishes

Marcus

Stolen Trees

Post  bob hill on Fri Jul 19, 2013 3:42 pm

Regardless and above all else this is really sick news my initial reaction was who or what was responsible for the security at this event? If any? However my main concern is if these trees are not already gone to some unscrupulous buyer who knows how they were attained then they could still be in the hands of the people who stole them...Ignorant and languishing in somebody's shed, van or backyard with no knowledge of how to care or look after them, especially in this freak weather....Then you have to ask yourself what concerning Bonsai Lover would buy any one of them without knowing the background of the trees...After all, you wouldn't buy a car without knowing it's history.....not.....nice!!!...

My wife is a member of the National Vegetable Society and she has also circulated info to members there to look out for the trees. They are all busy at shows, judging and showing , so will be making sure they check any bonsai exhibits too.

i'm thinking that in tented shows or hard to secure events that go overnight I would be inclined to take my trees away at night and replace them in the morning from now on. It almost needs a paid security guard to sleep in the tents these days - all clubs have a few younger keen 'apprentices' who would do the job and be happy to earn a few pounds. When I was 18-20 my boss had 2 of us sleep in the tent with all our show displays at every show, every night as show theft is very common - at one event thieves wearing agricultural overalls came on site with a lorry and loaded new tractors at the end of the event!! . I think it would be worthy peace of mind if tree owners all contributed to proper tent security - putting £5 or £10 each towards paying a responsible person is not unrealistic to totally deter tree thefts.

still keeping an eye out on my travels
