Copper & Aluminum Bonsai Wire

Bonsai wire is applied to shape and hold branches in place.  After a while the tree grows and the branch "remembers" it's new position.  The wire is then removed and you are well on your way to shaping bonsai using aluminum and copper bonsai wire.

We carry a full range of both aluminum and copper wire.  Grab a few sizes or a full set so you have what's needed when it's time to wire.  Don't forget your wire cutters, they help you apply the wire and help you even more when you need to remove it.


Raffia is used to protect branches and bark when wiring and bending branches of some species.  The raffia actually provides additional structure so branches don't snap.  Properly applying raffia and wire greatly increases the chances of your tree emerging healthy and happy from it's new look. 

Bonsai Turntables

A turntable makes working on bonsai much easier. We offer turntables that make working on trees much easier. Some of the lower cost turntables are used for trees on display so they can easily be rotated on a regular basis. This helps provide even light to all sides of the bonsai. We even have turntables with drawers inside to hold your wire or tools.

And A Whole Lot More!!!
