Min-Hsuan Lo Visits Montana
 By Jerry Meislik


In June 2005, bonsai Master Min-Hsuan Lo from Taiwan visited Whitefish, Montana. Master Lo is a second generation bonsai teacher and artist. His trees have won many awards both in Taiwan and internationally, including the prestigious JAL bonsai competition in 1999 with his Chinese pistachio tree.

Master Lo is also a pioneer in Taiwan in promoting more naturalistic styles of bonsai. Examples of his trees are shown below.

Master Lo was kind enough to spend one of his days demonstrating and lecturing to members of the Big Sky Bonsai Society and my bonsai students. He demonstrated refinement techniques on multiple tropical trees. His deep knowledge and love of bonsai captivated the group.
