Araki (荒木) is a term that refers to a yamadori bonsai, or a tree collected from the wild, that has not yet reached its full potential as a bonsai. Araki means "tree of the mountain" in Japanese, and it implies that the collector respects the nature and the history of the tree, and aims to create a bonsai that can be passed down for generations.
