The skill and dedication of the Bonsai tree masters who lovingly nurture the centuries-old bushes into zen works of art

Bonsai sensei, Kunio Kobayashi, and bonsai museum curator, Jack Sustic, have shared how they care for some of the world's longest-living bonsai
Sustic is the museum curator at the U.S. National Arboretum in D.C. where he cares for bonsai including a 400-year-old Yamaki white pine
Kobayashi has been looking after an estimated 1,000-year-old juniper tree at his Shunkaen Bonsai Museum in Tokyo, Japan
The bonsai masters said in their work, they must pay careful attention to their bonsai every day, with Sustic likening it to caring for a child
Sustic warns the biggest mistake people often make when they first get a bonsai is bringing it indoors

Award-winning bonsai sensei, Kunio Kobayashi, and bonsai
museum curator, Jack Sustic have shared ancient secrets behind
the centuries-old trees. Trees are pictured at the Shunkaen
Bonsai Museum in Tokyo, Japan



For Kobayashi, who has been doing bonsai for 30 years, he said
paying careful attention has helped him keep an estimated
1,000-year-old juniper tree alive and thriving

I think I've died & gone to heaven.

I'd love to do some of the evergreens & nicer deciduous trees but don't have the climate to keep the roots thriving. Even if I worked out some shelter, in this neighbourhood, they'd walk.
