I donít trust a Bonsai tree - they are a little shady
Bonsai is a hobby dating back hundreds of years that originated in China, though is now considered a Japanese art form. The word 'Bonsai' means 'Tree in Tray', and is the art of shaping trees to represent nature in miniature.
Roger Lunt, Brisbane's Bonsai Man says " Ultimately, Bonsai is not about shaping and growing trees, it is a†medium used to practice the art of caring about something unselfishly all of your life, to give to the next generation. We must all become custodians of the planet, for the art to continue and have meaning".
