The National Bonsai Foundation is located inside the US National Arboretum, and was opened in 1976, with 53 Bonsai trees donated by the Nippon Bonsai Association.
The NBF also has a collection of Penjing trees, gifted by China in 1972 and by Dr. Yee sun-Wu from Hong Kong. Finally there is a section with donated trees from within the US. With these three large donations the collection of the National Bonsai Foundation was immediately well respected.
