Al Nelson is a long time member of the California Bonsai Society and has studied with many of the bonsai masters, including John Naka. His specialties are group plantings as well as making stands for viewing stones. Back in 1985, Al, John Naka, and Harry Hirao made a number of trips to the Lompoc area collecting oaks. One of these collected trees is a cascading oak that was donated by John Naka to the U.S. National Arboretum. Al has also donated a majestic oak tree to the Safari Park Bonsai Pavilion. Al will be sharing his wealth of experience working with oaks with the club and just maybe something more so don’t miss this month’s meeting.
