The world of miniature trees

by The REJIGIT Blog

Bonsai is the art of growing and sustaining ornamental, artificially dwarfed varieties of trees and shrubs in pots. The Japanese practice of Bonsai dates back over a thousand years and similar horticultural art forms exist in other cultures, including the Chinese tradition of penjing and the miniature landscapes of Vietnamese hòn non bộ.

Below are some outstanding examples of Bonsai trees and the exceptional photographic images are courtesy of several photographers who shared their work with a creative commons license.
