The bonsai tree is a formal upright Japanese White pine. Decent formal uprights are rare and this splendid tree is far beyond just decent. That takes me back to the stunningly powerfull and surprisingly elegant monster trees that I had the good fortune to be bowled over by last fall. If you ever get a chance, visit Sequoias National Forest and make it point to spend some time with General Sherman.
