  1. Hi there,

    We met briefly at the bonsai show back in may. You were pretty busy with the photo sessions though. I have been following your page for a few years now and was wondering if you could pass on some advice regarding harvesting a tree from the wild.

    I’m planning a road trip up to Hudson Bay in a month. 17 hrs north. I’m looking to drive up to the tree line in Quebec where trees are naturally dwarfed. I’m not sure of the exact species I’m looking for. Probably a larch or juniper of some kind since they are common up there. Maybe a jack pine.

    I guess my question is, what should I do to this tree when I get home to ensure its survival? Plant it in the ground or pot? Should I start fertilizing right away? Should I be concerned about bringing pests back with me? (Ash borer)

    I really appreciate any advice you may have to offer and look forward to your reply.

    Thanks,

    Josh
