March 07 General Meeting - This month we will be applying the decision tree method to re-potting. As one of the most important things you can do for your tree, best practices techniques will help you to provide for the development, and ultimate health of your trees. Understanding why, when and how to re-pot your trees is a critical part of bonsai practice. We'll show you some examples of why re-potting techniques are so important and work on re-potting some trees in different states of development. We'll have experienced members on hand to answer your most pressing questions about re-potting.  If you have a tree that you'd like some advice about, be sure to bring it along.   

April 04 General Meeting - We'll follow-up with re-potting and answer some of your questions. Then it's on to grafting. Often times branches are not available to support the overall design of your tree.  Find out how to use thread and approach grafting to get optimum branch placement for your design.  Feel free to bring trees that you'd like to get feedback on.
