This year's Noelanders Trophy was held at a new location; bigger, more spacious and simply better. The trees on display were of outstanding quality and at least 5 trees reached the level of almost-perfection. Selecting the winner must have been difficult for this year's demonstrators; Ryan Neil, Salvatore Liporace and Seok Ju Kim.

The winning tree was an absolutely stunning Pinus Pentaphylla (Japanese Five needle pine), by Andres Alvarez Iglesias (styling by Mario Komsta). Watch the movie below for an overview of the Bonsai trees displayed at the exhibition.
