JANUARY 26, 2018 | 11:25:47 A jonitos tree is back to life after it was cut down by a group of protesters at a California nursery.
The protest, which was reported on Twitter by The Associated Press, started on Jan. 21 and ended Jan. 23 when the protesters dispersed.
Joniitos are native to California and are native species of the bonsa family.
They can grow up to 80 feet tall and reach up to 300 feet in length.
The trees also have a long and thick root system.
The Fresno Bee reports that the tree had been planted in July 2016.
But in the weeks leading up to the protest, people were blocking the entrance to the nursery and calling for its removal.
Jonitoses are native in Southern California and the eastern United States, but they have been reported to live in northern Mexico and parts of Canada.
The tree was originally planted in the area of the nursery where the Fresno Bee reported the protest.
The trees have been growing slowly in the forest for about a year and a half, according to the Bee.
But, they are now able to withstand the conditions of their native environment and the stress of growing in an urban environment, according the Bee article.
Jontos are popular in the West, particularly for bonsais, which are used in traditional Chinese medicine, Chinese cuisine and other Chinese and Japanese cuisines.
In the United States and many other countries, they also are popular for ornamental trees such as rosewood.
The Bonsai News Network, which monitors the nursery, reported that the trees have grown in size since they were cut down.
