Hi there, I am searching for a handful of old DESCIDOUS bonsai trees that have recently died or that are in good condition in terms of broken branches. I can pickup a tree in the US only.

I would love some advice....I am hoping to locate and purchase these trees in the next two months. Thank you so much for any suggestions.

PS: Where do dead bonsai's end up?

Hey, many Bonsaists keep their dead trees (if they're expressive) to make Tanuki. But it's not like expressive trees dies so frequently, owners of expressive trees tend to know what they are doing, =P.

I said tend, because I already heard for example about a case here, that a doctor bought a expensive big Japanese Black Pine to put on his clinic's waiting room (of course it died).

Others just throw in the dumpster, once I found a dead tree with the pot still (free pot for me), but that's rare...

Try big nurseries...

Thank you Albus! I didn't know about Tanuki and using deadwood...makes sense. Thank you again and I will try nurseries.
