swiss 'volunteer' fir tree for bonsai


This fir tree started in between a couple of rhododendrons under our mature beech tree several years ago, and I recently decided to try making it into a proper bonsai.

I am not actually sure how active this site is, but will also send a note to the contact us page for your recommendations in this regard.

Thanks for all the info in your site and your interest in efforts of others like me!
