For the benefit of the bonsai community, we are archiving here various other articles which are seen to have value
to fellow enthusiasts.
Please contact us to consider articles for storage, rjb at magiminiland dot org.
Articles for storage here must be submitted in a .pdf or .doc format, which we will then put in a .pdf format.
(We are also now in the process of setting up an archive for videos with our new YouTube account MagiMiniLand .
We will be very happy to accept your DVD-formatted videos, especially of old meetings, teachers, etc.,
again, at no charge to you to donate or access.)
Accepted articles will be preserved at no cost either to the author or to the reader,
but we do request that any reprinting of these be done ONLY with the written permission of the author,

Relevant background material will be included with the author and title listing on this page,
