Though the trunk on this two header monster expresses sheer power, the branches and foliage are surprisingly delicate and graceful. The tree is a Coast Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens), a species* that happens to be the tallest tree on this planet (there are a few hidden in the wilds of northwest California that tower to as high as 400 feet - 122 meters).
You don’t see that many top notch Redwood bonsai and, in my experience, most of the ones you do see come from members of the Redwood Empire Bonsai Society (who knew that the group that calls themselves Redwood Empire would have so many great redwoods?)

We found all the photos shown here on Pinterest. All but one are originally from REBSociety and about half have appeared here on Bark.

Here's the one that's not from REBSociety. The caption on Pinterest says... "Photograph by Cedric Weins (via Portland Japanese Garden)" (Wiens is misspelled).
*Coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) is the tallest tree in the world (up to about 400 feet – 122 meters). It’s cousin, the Giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum) which grows in California’s Sierra Nevada mountains, happens to be the largest tree (in mass) in the world, and though it’s one of the taller trees on this planet (around 270 feet – 82 meters), it’s still not nearly as tall as the coast redwood.
