President's Message

Hot weather continues, high temps, then a bit cooler lately. Take care not to be deceived into doing major work on your bonsai, the weather does seem cooler. Major work, root pruning, major trimming, grafting etc., is very stressful and high temps combined with major work can mean the demise of our carefully crafted works of art. They, much like we, can only take so much stress, and something gives! Just as we try not to perform major tasks when we’re weak or tired, the same principle applies when working on a weakened tree, (one that is lack luster, yellowed leaves, evergreens that are pale, trees that are just not budding and growing). A happy growing tree just oozes excitement, and says to the artist, let’s get too it what do we do next?  Maintenance pruning should continue, take a look and plan what to do when the cooler growing season arrives. What is my long term plan, next pot for this tree etc.
