Demonstartion: At our November meeting, Gary Jones will be providing a demonstration on a Monterey Cypress. Gary has been devoted to bonsai for the past 29 years and has been a long-time member of the San Diego Bonsai Club, having held various positions in the club. He is currently one of our beginning class training instructors. He is also a mentor to many, both in the club and in the community.
Cupressus macrocarpa, commonly known as Monterey Cypress, is a species of cypress native to the Central Coast of California. Strong salt laden winds blast off the sea to contort and gnarl the trunks and branches into the eerie shapes we seem to love for bonsai. These trees are often exhibited at Central CA bonsai shows as well as at GSBF conventions. ‘lyn Stevenson has an excellent example that has been exhibited at the SDBC shows and is now on display at the Safari Park Bonsai Pavilion.
Bring in any trees you have concerns about as we have knowledgeable members available in the Bonsai Help area to the right of the stage in room 101.
Reminder: Bring items for the benefit drawing and food to share with the other members.
