One of my favorite trees from East Bay Bonsai Society’s 48th annual bonsai show is the Shore juniper pictured below.
Shore juniper – medium size
Rick, the tree’s owner, has been developing the tree for a number of years from a landscape shrub. The deadwood on the trunk is excellent – I’ve included pictures from several sides below.
Rick deserves credit for his work on this tree and for his collection in general. As does his wife, Janet. The two maintain an impressive collection that’s featured in this month’s Bonsai Focus (5/2009 #123). If you haven’t seen it, I suggest you check it out. Look carefully and you’ll see this tree in at least two of the photos.
