Oaks are my favorite and these are magnificent. They're such stately trees. Do you know of any other species of oak suitable for bonsai?

Camille,

all oak species are good for bonsai.

Walter,

I recieved a Tree of Life Oak Tree in memorial of my Mother who recently passed. I am growing it from seed and I have a 2" seedling going great. My problem is I have nowhere to plant it, so I would like to try and train it as a bonsai. Can you start me off in the right direction (tips, reading material, etc...)?

Thanks,

TJ

TJ,

google
'bonsai nut' 'internet bonsai club gallery', 'Knowledge of bonsai'.
one cannot do proper bonsai without first reading a couple of books on the subject. Go to amazon.
