Bonsai (pronounced bone-sigh) is an art form similar to painting, music, and sculpture which provides each of us with an opportunity to demonstrate our creative expression and horticultural techniques. Bonsai, translated literally from Japanese, means “tree in a tray”. It can be considered 50% art form and 50% horticulture.
This tree belongs to Carlos Berkowitz, is a work in process, just recently going through a pruning and wiring which took Carlos a week to get done, he does have other trees to care for.
