You many remember that I post THIS back in September about a Stolen Hornbeam.
Good News, the tree has been recovered. I believe that there’s more to the story but to keep the facts correct, I’ll paste below the correct info direct from Mike’s Bonsai Passion Blog.
‘Back in September of this year, I brought sad news of a bonsai theft from John Trott … aka, Mendip Bonsai
The theft occurred whilst JT was exhibiting at the Royal Bath & West show.
During the last week, this beautiful Bonsai has been recovered. Sadly, not as it once was when owned by John. The tree was successfully recovered in the Manchester area of the Country.
The hugely important fact, is that due to concerted effort by many to circulate this information as quickly as possible, has undoubtedly been instrumental in said recovery. Had this information not been circulated as much as it had, then it is likely John would never have been contacted … regarding HIS tree!
Thank you to everyone who did all they could to make people aware of this theft. It has on this occasion paid dividends.
I am unable to go into further detail at this time.’
