This juniper was reported stolen from Kim's Bonsai Nursery in Phelan, California. If you live in Southern CA, keep a eye out. I just googled stolen bonsai and was surprise to see how many trees were recovered and return to their rightful owner
Many years ago when I was partner at New England Bonsai, theft was ongoing concern. Fortunately, it didn’t happen very often, but it did happen. One day there’s a valuable bonsai sitting in its space on the bench and the next day the space is empty and the felling you are left with is also empty
Kim's Bonsai Nursery. Is that empty spot where the stolen tree made its home?
Fortunately, this rock planting still lives happily at Kim's
