We take deep personal pride in delivering trees to our customers that they’ll cherish forever, and that all begins with our detailed & extensive process of prepping and packaging our Bonsai for transit.
However, once we hand over the package to the carrier, the treatment and care of the tree is no longer under our control and unfortunately, things do happen in transit that can negatively affect the health and wellbeing of your tree.
If you suspect that damage was occurred during the delivery process, please contact us immediately at 508-883-2842 or by email at NEBonsai@NEBonsai.com
Non-Specimen Bonsai (Trees Under $100)
- We guarantee all non-specimen Bonsai for 30 days, whether you purchase them instore or online. In the event that you purchase your tree online, we can guarantee that the tree will ship healthy, but weather and shipping services can have an impact on the condition your Bonsai arrives in. If there are any issues upon your tree’s arrival, PLEASE contact us immediately so we can intervene and do everything we can to save the Bonsai.
Specimen Bonsai (Trees $100 and Above)
- We guarantee all specimen Bonsai will ship from our facility in peak health. Specimen trees are one-of-a-kind and because of their unique nature our ability to replace them is extremely limited. If you have ordered a specimen tree from us and it arrives damaged, you must contact us within 24 hours of receipt. After that time, any health problems or damage to the tree are considered the buyer's responsibility. We strongly urge any customer purchasing a specimen tree from us to review our care instructions for their breed to ensure it thrives in their care. We guarantee that all specimen Bonsai arrive healthy and true to name. Please note that once a tree leaves our nursery, weather and shipping services can have an impact on the condition your Bonsai arrives in. If there are any issues upon your specimen tree’s arrival, PLEASE contact us immediately so we can intervene and do everything we can to save the Bonsai. Insurance is ALWAYS purchased.

This hands-on workshop is the best class for a beginner. You come with your enthusiasm and open mind and you leave with a beautiful bonsai and the confidence and knowledge to keep it alive. If you have been wanting to learn about bonsai but are uncertain about how to go about it- this class is for you.
Participants will learn the basics of bonsai care and the instructor will guide you through the pruning, trimming and transplanting of their own bonsai.
Attendee Cost: $55 per student
Duration: 10am – 1pm. Please arrive a few minutes early.
Included with Workshop:
- Experienced instructor
- Refreshments & snack (water, soda, chips)
- Bonsai tools, soil, and wire to support the class
What’s NOT included:
- Bonsai Tree. Participants have preferences (small tree, large tree, indoor, low light, etc). Allowing participants to select their own tree works best. We have hundreds of pre-bonsai (starting at $9.90)
