Since 1972 the Bonsai Society of Upstate New York has grown into a strong group of local Bonsai enthusiasts living in Western New York who are devoted to exploring the rewarding world of Bonsai. To support our local community of Bonsai enthusiasts the Bonsai Society of Upstate New York regularly hosts meetings with noted Bonsai professionals from around the world for lectures, demonstrations, and specialized hands-on workshops. Each Spring we also share an exhibit of the area’s finest Bonsai with the public.

We developed this new web site in 2020 so that our members can get a much more enjoyable experience whether at home or on their phone.  Hopefully you like all of the new content and interactive media that we will be sharing on a regular basis.  We’d love to see you at one of our regularly scheduled meetings in Rochester where you can learn more and meet with other Bonsai enthusiasts.  Come enjoy this wonderful hobby with us!
