Mountain Hemlock Tsuga mertensiana

Here is a picture of a very large Hemlock I collected several years ago and now owned by Mr. Tak Yamaura and on display at Japan Bonsai in Whiterock BC. The next set of photos showed the great lengths it took to collect this monster.

Prepare to lower the tree from the cliff to the level below.

The monster is on it’s side root ball exposed but completely solid and compact no need to wrap the rootball on this one. Now we just have to lower it gently down.Safely down all that is left is to bring the monster home.

The next large Hemlock I collected.

Who what of thought? Cell service up here? Can’t escape into the wilderness.

Here are both of the large monsters at Mr. Yamuara’s  (Japan Bonsai) in Whiterock BC.
