“The ‘root-stock’ tree should be of the same species as the 'scion' tree in
order for a successful grafting to take place and a healthy tree is produced. A
frequent match for bonsai grafting is: a five-needle pine "scion" grafted onto
a Japanese black pine ‘root-stock’.
Why Is It More Desirable?
Grafting techniques are often applied at bonsai nurseries for reproducing
large numbers of a desirable species. Trees that are desirable for use in
bonsai have characteristics suitable for smaller design arrangements, which
will persuasively reproduce nature in a miniature perspective.
A range of desirable characteristics for use in bonsai include: form, color,
branch and trunk structure, bark texture, a wide range of leaf shapes, sizes,
and textures, and a wide range of needle shapes, sizes, and textures - for

“Grafting method is generally used for propagating trees, when propagation

“Why Is It More Expensive?
- Grafted trees are expensive for two reasons:
The first being grafting itself is a horticultural challenge
that requires years of dedication - depending on species,
only 10 percent to 80 percent of grafts will take; a
comprehensive education - instruction of the many and
varied grafting techniques is essential for success; and an
artistic sense - as unsightly scars and uneven trunk tapers
are detrimental to a tree's value.
Secondly, a masterfully grafted tree will contain several
desirable characteristics, which do not occur naturally,
making it an excellent candidate for use in bonsai.
