Connecting through Bonsai

Bonsai Empire began as the dream of a young kid (Oscar), who at age fifteen created a simple website about his hobby. This was back in December 2000. Since that time, the website grew to become the online Bonsai platform and community, supported by a group of people that share one vision; connecting through Bonsai.

With the recent increase of interest in Bonsai, and the spread of this hobby across the globe, our vision slowly became reality. Our fifteen languages have a combined reach of millions of visitors a year, with a vibrant and active community as a result. Many experts on Bonsai (and related) topics guest-blog on our website. We create videos about several Bonsai topics. And our active participation at Facebook, Insta and YouTube enabled us to reach and excite even more people through social media.

Don't hesitate to join the discussions on our forum to become a part of Bonsai Empire!

What we stand for

Our vision

Connecting people across the world through a shared passion - Bonsai.

Our mission

Our mission is to build a great community where people can learn about growing Bonsai trees. But more importantly, Bonsai Empire is to be a place where people meet and get excited about the key aspects of Bonsai: harmony, nature and beauty.

Our values

Respect, passion and (a promise to our members) respecting privacy. Feel free to read our privacy policy for more detailed information.


Hosting a high traffic website is CO2 intensive, as is streaming video lectures and traveling internationally to visit the worldwide bonsai events. We choose to compensate our entire CO2 emissions by planting trees via Trees for All. And of course we like to think that by offering quality information, we help people keep their bonsai trees alive longer!
