Bonsai is a Japanese art form using miniature trees grown in containers. Other cultures practice similar techniques, such as the Chinese tradition of penjing. The Japanese tradition dates back several thousand years, and has evolved into a completely unique art form. Bonsai is a Japanese pronunciation of the earlier Chinese term penzai. A 'bon' is a tray-like pot typically used in bonsai culture. The word bonsai is often used in English as an umbrella term for all miniature trees in containers or pots, but this article focuses on bonsai as defined in the Japanese tradition. The purposes of bonsai are primarily contemplation and the pleasant exercise of effort and ingenuity. By contrast with other plant cultivation practices, bonsai are not intended for production of food, medicine, or for creating yard-size or park-size gardens or landscapes. Instead, bonsai practice focuses on long-term cultivation and shaping of one or more small trees in a single container.

Preserved bonsai trees bring the original bonsai art form to a new generation. Each artificial preserved bonsai tree is crafted from Juniper or Grapewood with exquisite care. Every tree is preserved to ensure the longevity of the wood’s natural color, as well as its shape and strength. Preserved bonsais are the ultimate in home decoration, as they never have to be watered or trimmed. These bonsai trees come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, from the 8” tall Monterey Bonsai to the massive 6’ Kage Bonsai; however, no two artificial bonsai trees are alike, as each is a truly unique shape and color.
