Yellow birch

This birch (betula alleghaniensis) was also purchased from a garden centre.

This tree is probably not one of the best trees to have as a bonsai because the size of the leaves are quite big, but it was the truck that attracted me to this tree. Good nebrei can also be seen which is always an important aspect of making a good bonsai.
It was repotted in the spring and I found that the roots where shallow enough for me to be able to place it straight into a bonsai pot.
