About Us

Nestled within the captivating landscape of Ohio’s Black River watershed, Black River Bonsai stands as a sanctuary for bonsai enthusiasts. Founded in 2019 by Daniel White, a seasoned horticulturist with over 25 years of expertise and an unwavering devotion to bonsai, our nursery is a treasure trove housing an enchanting and budget-friendly collection of bonsai and pre-bonsai specimens.

What truly distinguishes us is our steadfast dedication to quality and excellence. We take immense pride in curating a selection of trees that are not only exquisite but also perfectly adapted to flourish in Ohio’s Zone 6a and its surroundings.

Daniel, an Ohio Certified Nursery Technician (Grower), brings a profound depth of knowledge and skill to the art of bonsai. His journey into the world of bonsai commenced in 2017, and since then, he has immersed himself in the pursuit of mastering this art form. With an astute eye for intricacies and an unbridled passion for horticulture, Daniel tirelessly ensures that each tree leaving our nursery exudes nothing but exceptional craftsmanship.

At Black River Bonsai, we firmly believe that bonsai transcends being a mere pastime – it’s a profound passion that binds us together.
