The Associated Press says a bonsai tree valued at $20,000 has been stolen from a nursery on Highway 16 near Gorst.

The bonsai tree, called a Hinoki Cypress Dwarf, is 57 years old and was donated to the Elandan Gardens in 1991. It was part of a large outdoor bonsai museum.
No other bonsai trees were taken from the nursery.

Police are investigating.
