snowblind,

Definitely one of the better Chinese Elms we've seen here, thanks for posting it. What other species are you interested in?

Wow,
That is a beautiful tree, I like it a lot. The branch placement is superb, the person you recieved this from obviously knew what he was doing, kudos to having an excellent tree. :D

the guy i got the tree from is a old hand at bonsai and this was one of his first trees. he let me have it due to the fact i bugged him for years XD allso i had had a lot of other trees from him in the past . the placement of the branches ive changed alittle dude to the fact i wonted to put my stamp on the tree and wow has it gone well but its a elm and they tend to go well =D

thank you for the comments btw you make me blush :oops:
