In addition to many free educational events and clinics throughout the year (check our news and events page for listings), we offer

Tree-sitting and Boarding:

Going away? Or do you feel that your tree could benefit from a few weeks in a greenhouse during those dark winter months? Bring your Bonsai in, and we'll look after it for you, so you can be sure it gets the best possible care.

If your Bonsai doesn't seem to be thriving, revitalize it with the Bonsai West Cure!
