I've long loved to view bonsai and am only just beginning to learn how to care for them. For so many years I had no outdoor space!
I just bought a home in the Daly City/Broadmoor area that is surrounded by 50+ year old juniper hedges. A few Boxwood too. Many of these I want to remove over the next year or so. I know that juniper is a common tree for bonsai use, so I'm wondering if some of these wonderful old trunks would make good bonsai specimens? They've been clipped as hedges so the branch structure would need work of course, but from what I've seen so far many of the plants have large and interesting bases. Most of these hedges are something like 18-24" tall.
Anyway, before I start ripping these out, I thought I'd ask the members of this forum if anyone would like some? They'd be free of course, all I ask is that you let me help you dig them up, and maybe you can share your knowledge while we work!
Also, if anyone out there knows that this just won't work, please let me know so I can grab my chainsaw without remorse...
