About Me

My name is Erick Schmidt and I live in south central Pennsylvania. I became a huge bonsai enthusiast about 3-4 years ago. Most of my spare time is now consumed by my bonsai hobby. I have been all over the web looking at other blogs, websites, videos and such so I can gain as much knowledge as i can on bonsai.  I will use this blog as a way to share my bonsai interest with the world along with some other odds and ends periodically.  I hope that I can give everyone an idea of what it is like being involved with bonsai in and around the state of Pennsylvania, USA. 

I am at most an amateur when it comes to dealing with bonsai. My whole intent of  this blog is to promote the bonsai interest around where I live and to give anyone who is interested in bonsai but unsure of what to do or how to get started some inspiration. I mean after all, Im basically just starting myself 🙂 Please feel free to reach out to me through comments or my email if you have any questions I may be able to help with. Thanks again for your time.

If you would like you can also follow me through several of social media apps I use. Below is the list of what I use and my usernames so you can find me 🙂

  1. Hey Chuck.. great blog! My name is Lenny and I have a just acquired a new tree that I would like to bonsai. I did some research and found that your Tiger Eye Sumac is extremely close to my tree. I am very much a novice and would love to talk with you about suggestions for this tree. If you could contact me, that would be great.

    1. Sorry Lenny for such a delayed response. I have been on a short break from my blog and have not been able to reply. Fist my name is Erick, not Chuck, and I would be glad to assist you with any questions you have regarding bonsai and about my Tiger Eye Sumac 🙂

  2. Erick,
    Thanks so much for getting back to me! Sorry for the name mixup. I have a tiger sumac that is similar to yours, but with a thinner trunk. If I send over some photos, think you could suggest care and training tips?

  3. Hi Erick, just to let you know that your website has expired and is about to be cancelled (there was a notification that popped up when I visited your blog). Cheers, David (New Zealand).
