I just received word from an email from the Bonsai Society of Florida that Ed Trout's buttonwood was stolen.
"I have some very bad news. Last night, some low life stole my ( our ) logo buttonwood from my back yard. It was no more than 8 feet from my back door. I am sad & sick, and feel like someone has kidnapped a family member. Please help me get the word out. Ed"
This was the signature bonsai of the Gold Coast Bonsai club. I've personally seen Ed Work this tree and it is amazing. Here is a picture I took approximately two months ago of Ed working on this tree at our Gold Coast Bonsai meeting. Get the word out. Let's find who took this tree!
