Interesting shape.
Did they supply the age of the Bonsai?

Hi TT :o)
No ages were given. All of them looked very old though, the trunks were much thicker than you normally see on bonsai. Unfortunately I don't know enough about bonsai to even guess, this one was about 2-3 feet tall.

From what I understand of them, they look like a miniature of an identical aged tree. I'd guess this is 40-50yrs as a white pine. Really wonderful!

I'm not sure Greenthumb, but I suspect you're about right. Their trunks are so much thicker than the ones you'd normally see. They must get passed down from grower to grower - now that would take a lot of trust!!

A lot of trust. This collection is amazing!
