This YouTube video is a superb presentation by Bill Smith about the anatomy of a tree. Recorded on Jan 16, 2021, it is exceptionally well produced and is full of graphics that make the understanding of a tree straightforward and easy to understand.
This is a link to a unique two hour Bonsai demonstration at Wigert’s Bonsai Nursery with Mike Lane, Erik Wigert and Jason Osborne. https://youtu.be/0Y_WYbNl59w For those of you who are not familiar with these gentlemen, they are world-leading experts in the art Bonsai. This session is not only replete with Bonsai techniques on growing and styling trees, but filled with humor.
This article was sent to us by Jorge Nazario, the BSF President. It’s a very detailed treatise on all aspects of Bonsai with a full panoply of subjects: an introduction, history, trunk and Nebari rules, sunlight, fertilizer, watering, insects, moss, Bonsai soil, wiring and that’s only half of it! The article finishes with a complete Glossary of Terms. Thank you, Jorge!

This is Martha Goff’s slide presentation of Kusamono that she showed us at the last meeting. Very good descriptions and photos.
