The Bonsai Tree is nearly 21.7 feet in diameter level at the ground, 18.5 feet in diameter at breast height from the high side ground and 185 feet tall. Although not the largest tree in the grove, it may be the most visually striking tree in the forest. It grows out of a rocky ridge top so it will never be the tallest or the biggest in the grove however its many large low hanging branches make it perhaps the most stunning.
The Bonsai Tree is one of the greatest of the many trajedies of the Castle Fire of 2020. It burned for over a year after the fire. Below are some pics of it in june approx 8 months after the fire. It was still burning at that time and caved in futher until approx a year after the fire the final large limbs fell still actively on fire and now only half as tall as the below of it stands as a broken snag only.
