Wolfgang Käflein R.I.P.

A great friend has left us. Wolfgang was extremely important for the German bonsai scene in the late eighties and nineties until around 2010. He has probably collected around 50,000 trees from the wilderness. In his garden one could always find treasures for reasonable money. Wolfgang was an outstanding personality with immense impact onto whoever met him. I have spent many many hours with him and also went hunting for trees together. My better trees of the collection almost all came from Wolfgang in the eighties and nineties. A truly most remarkable man indeed! R.I.P.
