what is the best type of tree to create a bonsai tree with? Answered

i live in florida so trees that live good there would be best


You did not say where in Florida you are in, but minamitropicalbonsai.com has a page suggesting trees for each of the 5 main bonsai styles that work well in the miami.fl area. I reccomend you look there for ideas.

From Wikipedia: Bonsai can be created from nearly any perennial woody-stemmed tree or shrub species which produces true branches and can be cultivated to remain small through pot confinement with crown and root pruning. Some species are popular as bonsai material because they have characteristics, such as small leaves or needles, that make them appropriate for the compact visual scope of bonsai.
