Giant redwoods evolved among the dinosaurs, and some individual trees are among the oldest life forms on the planet. So, it may come as no surprise that these prehistoric plants are prized specimens in the ancient art of bonsai. Redwood trees, however, aren’t just the oldest—they’re also the tallest and largest trees on earth.
The Coast redwoods are the tallest trees on earth and can grow upwards of 370 feet. So, it’s no surprise harnessing these towering titans in pygmy form is a crown achievement for the bonsai enthusiast.
The long foliage and needles of redwoods, along with their vigorous nature, make them easy to train and ideal for those just beginning to care for bonsai trees. Their slender, upright trunks and pliable bark make for excellent bonsai specimens. But they’ll keep you on your toes! Coast redwoods are destined for the sky and will quickly outpace the bonsai grower if not carefully maintained. During the growing season, check your tree daily for new buds, runaway roots, or wire damage.
