There are some things I like about it. The aesthetics, obviously. I can also appreciate the amount of knowledge, skill, and patience that's needed to cultivate a good bonsai tree as well. As weird as it sounds though, I find the act of stunting a tree's growth, to keep it from becoming what it's biologically driven to become, kind of cruel. Even though it is just a plant.
