This white cedar has a long history, from it’s collection in Northern Ontario, to becoming a Marc Nolanders demo in 1997, and beyond. It passed from there to Rainer Gobel, to Chase Rosade, to Bill Valavanis, and today it was the object of Peter Warren’s entertaining, if not lightning-fast demo, assisted by Marc Arpag.

I have been studying bonsai since 1994, in an ever-increasing obsessive fashion. In our last 5 years prior to moving from Iowa to Alabama pursuing a career in the foodservice industry, my bonsai collection was limited to a few varieties that could survive brutal winters outside, or winters under dim light in the dank basement of our humble duplex...my wife puts up with a lot. Including the trailer hitch I put on our brown 1983 Chrysler New Yorker to pull a U-Haul full of trees to Nashville for a 3-month stop along the career path that led us to Alabama. 12 years later, we no longer have the New Yorker; and not a single one of those trees remain on my bench, having given the last holdout to a new club member this summer. I prefer collecting native trees and buying the classical species used in Japan, feeding organic, and reading everything I can get my hands on. View all posts by Brian VF
