Bonsai trees are not a special species, but rather are the result of years of collaborative work with nature to create a miniature tree or forest scene in a shallow pot. Learn about the history of bonsai, and what it takes — both the tools and the techniques — to create these works of art, while a member of the Bonsai Society of Greater New Haven demonstrates some of the work that sets a nursery plant on the road towards becoming a bonsai tree.
