BCI's Bonsai & Stone Appreciation Magazine is a glossy, full color quarterly publication with an international focus. 
Articles cover many subjects from important international and national conferences, tours and exhibits to showcasing the work and collections of noted artists and collectors. We strive to inform and educate our readers with articles that expand and enrich our knowledge of bonsai, penjing, viewing stones, bonsai pottery, companion plants, formal presentation of trees and stones, and much more. Book reviews, News and Events help our readers stay in touch with the international world of bonsai and related arts. 
Members are invited to submit articles and photos on any subject our readers may find of interest. Learn how bonsai enthusiasts adapt the art of bonsai to local growing conditions and the many different species they use to create beautiful bonsai. Stone collectors are exposed to the many different cultures that appreciate stones, their history, their aesthetic and the places where beautiful viewing stones can be found.
The magazine is also available in electronic format for members who enjoy reading magazines online and don't want to wait for the mail.
Join your fellow bonsai and stone enthusiasts by joining BCI today to get your Bonsai & Stone Appreciation Magazine.
