About This Product

The art of bonsai begins with a tree! Practiced for centuries in both Eastern and Western cultures, the bonsai art form is a great outlet for creativity and artistic expression. Anyone can do it, and it all starts with this tree!


About Japanese Black Pine

A classic choice for landscaping and a great bonsai tree too, Japanese Black Pine (Pinus thunbergii) is a robust, lush tree, plentiful in its native Japan, where it is known as Kurmatsu or Omatsu. A 2-needle pine with rich, bright green foliage, Japanese Black Pine's spreading branches form a broad, conical tree which becomes informal and spreading in age, often with a leaning trunk.

This tree is suitable for yards, gardens, and container-growing in a variety of climates, as it will tolerate winds, seaside conditions, and both cold (down to -20°F) and hot circumstances. Heights vary from 20 to 125 feet, depending on conditions. Also available to grow from seed.


About Jonsteen's Seedlings

All of our trees are seed-grown without poison or pesticides at our nursery on California's Redwood Coast, which is inspected monthly and licensed by the California Department of Agriculture. Trees can provide a natural barrier against high winds, temperatures, noise pollution and soil erosion, all while benefiting local air quality, wildlife and property values — a Jonsteen seedling will only grow in value and beauty!


About Jonsteen's Packaged Live Trees

A staple of the National Parks for decades, this tried-and-true packaging looks fantastic and is super practical, making it possible for our trees to literally travel the world. Each tree is backed up by our 100% guarantee and includes a free growing brochure.


About Jonsteen's 100% Guarantee

All of our trees are guaranteed to arrive healthy and in good condition. If your tree perishes despite your honest efforts, we will be happy to replace it with a small-sized seedling for just the cost of shipping/handling (typically under $5). You can learn more about our guarantee and tree replacement policy here.

Seedling Size Chart: Small

Due to the dynamic nature of actively growing trees, as well as the tremendous variation between species’ growth rates, we rely on the cubic volume of a seedling’s root mass to determine its “size” (Small / Medium / Large / XL). Within each size there is minor variance — the dimensions provided here represent the category minimum. If exact measurements are essential, please contact us about current stock.
