Ponderosa pine, Pinus ponderosa var. ponderosa

I started collecting ponderosa pines in Wyoming in the mid 1980's. This is one was found growing in a basic bonsai style which is highly unusual. The wonder of ponderosa pine bonsai is the bark. With age ponderosas develop thick scaly bark plates. There is nothing to compare. Imagine the feeling of finding a naturally dwarfed and stunted tree several hundred years old. We can estimate age pretty accurately by counting the terminal bud scale scars. This tree grew at the rate of 1" in height every 10 years. Even figuring very conservatively this tree must be well over 300 years.

We styled this ponderosa bonsai about 20 years ago. It is in a Tokanoma pot.

Here's your chance to have a legitimately old bonsai. Truly unique.

The overall height is 40", the height from the soil surface is 34".

The price includes all packaging, handling, and shipping charges, a $300.00 value. Your bonsai will be packed in a sturdy container filled with styrofoam peanuts and strapped to a pallet. We ship via UPS Freight. By shipping in this manner we have had no damage to trees or pots. You'll also end up with enough peanuts to take care of your Christmas needs for several years.
