This 390 year old Japanese White Pine was donated to the National Arboretum in Northeast Washington for the Arboretum’s National Bonsai and Penjing Museum.
Think about it! This tree has survived since the 16th century and also survived an atomic bomb!
The bonsai tree’s history is being honored this week, as Thursday marks the 70th anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing. But visitors can see the tree as part of the museum’s permanent collection throughout the year.
