MARCH 16, 2017

At our March meeting, our demonstrators will be DIBK members Tom Vuong and Allan Sugimura. Tom is the co-founder of the Viet Bonsai Today Society, and is a popular presenter in the Southern California bonsai club circuit. He is known for his advanced grafting and styling techniques in Black Pine and California Juniper, amongst others. Allan is a certified nursery grower and has been practicing bonsai for over 20 years. He specializes in Japanese Black Pine, and has hundreds of trees in various stages of growth.

They will be demonstrating various techniques on creating difficult bends in old growth Juniper trunks. This is a topic not covered very often, so this will be a demonstration that is not to be missed.
