Beautiful Bonsai Tree Examples

The real purpose of growing a Bonsai Tree is primarily the enjoyment of owning a spot of life you can call your own . The enjoyment comes from the contrast that life has to offer. Bonsai tree examples focus on long term cultivation and shaping of one or more small trees growing in your own world.

A common misconception is that the plants used for Bonsai are genetically ‘dwarfed’ plants. Bonsai trees are normal plants, propagated like any other, but trained using sophisticated techniques to keep them in miniature size.

The art of Bonsai shaping and tree training is one of the oldest, most intricate arts in the gardening and botanical industry. The word bonsai is derived from the Japanese words bon, meaning tray, and sai, meaning tree, with a literal meaning of planting miniature trees inside a tray.

Although originally started in Japan, there are similar Bonsai Tree examples that are practiced in other cultures, such as the art of Penjing in China and hon-non-bo in Vietnam. These living, miniature natural masterpieces increase greatly in aesthetic appeal and financial value as the tree matures over time.

There are a variety of different styles of bonsai trees, as well as many different species of tree that can be used to create a Bonsai. Styles of Bonsai include informal upright, formal upright, cascade, literati, semi-cascade and raft bonsais, all of which can range greatly in size from miniature, small, medium and large… Courtesy of http://www.bonsaitreegardener.net
