Some Japanese must have ground planted the "bonsai" there to thicken up the branch, but forgot to dig it up again. Smile

i think it is a bonsai set free.

you could think of 'bonsai' as a tree trapped in a pot - this one was let out Very Happy

i think a styled tree in the ground has another name that one of the clever ones will let us know...........

Huge old trees like this one, is from time to time collected in the mountains, or fieldgrown....In China we saw it big times.... It looks to me, like the this tree is growing on a slab....big, but a bonsai....tre in pot Smile

I've seen that tree. It is a marvel to see it "in the round."

Jim, could you tell if it was planted in the ground or on a slab as Yvonne suggests?
It is an inspiring tree! Wow!

I'm sure it was planted in the gro9und, but after so many years it makes no difference, anyway. In the winter, the branches are wrapped in straw.
