Holly Oak. Quercus ilex. Oak variety with particularly small leaves. Oak trees are rare as bonsai because in general the leaves are too big.
But there are a few varieties that are suitable and the Holly oak is clearly one of them. It is an evergreen. And is hardy to about 40 degrees.
You can see the hefty trunk here offsets the full crown, and even though the leaves are not tiny, they look to scale. 13" pot. 4" trunk base rapidly tapers to 2" trunk.
