Post subject:  Coast Redwood - Before and After

This first picture is a Coast Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) I bought at Mendocino Coast Bonsai in 1996. The picture was taken just before the MABA/Milwaukee Bonsai Convention of 2002. It was awarded the "President's Design Award". That winter, while on vacation, the heat went off and the tree, along with others, froze solid at -10f degrees for at least 2 weeks. I thought it was dead. Most of it did die off and it had to be completely redisgned. Redwoods don't like temps below 32f degrees! The next picture is that tree after after a miracle recovery period lasting to this day. The 2nd picture is that tree just before the Mid-America Bonsai Exhibit at the Chicago Botanic Garden this past August. Paul Stokes of Mad City Bonsai took pictures of the event and posted them on this site and the IBC site. Hope you enjoy these pictures and this little story.

Dorothy,
The pictures appear fine for me. Are you logged in? Perhaps they do not show up when one is visiting as a guest?
Best regards,
Carl
