Summer Show August 2016

We had three classes based on tree size as recommended by Nippon Bonsai Association or, more precisely the height from
a) the top of soil to the highest part of the tree, or
b) for cascades and semi-cascade: from the highest part of the tree to the lowest part of the tree.

The Best Tree in Show was a White Pine from the Large class and owned by Steve.
