Stunted Redwood

Post  mike page on Thu Aug 12, 2010 10:27 pm

Originally collected by Bob Shimon and son. Below is info about Bob.

"Bob Shimon joined the Redwood Empire Bonsai Society around 1985. He first studied with Mas Imazumi, the club sensei. He has also studied with Yasuo Mitsuya, Tokita, and Taka from Japan, and Italian artist Marco Invernizzi. He continues to take regular workshops with the current club sensei, Kathy Shaner. He has conducted demonstrations and workshops for clubs and has a reputa tion for providing interesting material. With his son Zack, he owns Mendocino Coast Bonsai. They sell trees they have collected in Northern California such as their specialty coastal redwoods, oaks, pygmy cypress and sierra junipers."

This Redwood is about 16 inches tall including the Dick Ryerson pot. First image is whole tree. Second is a closeup of the wood. It's mostly natural. No carving was done. Just some rot removed.

Charming little tree Mike! With some development on the branches and refinement of the deadwood it will make an excellent shohin. Do you know if this type of coastal redwoods would do well in the North East??
