It’s a nice tree. A perfect start. It is time to say goodbye to your free and roomy garden in the background :joy:
Not much time and all will be full of trees.

A good start, but the vertical to horizontal to vertical movement does not sit right with me. I would try to get the initial movement from the pot at an angle and then round out the curves in the trunk a bit.

I totally see that now. I’ll make some adjustments. Thank you!:grin:

Another thought to consider, you have a large mass of soil supporting only about 30 leaves. I would let this blow out for a couple of years and work on wiring to shape as that happens. But agree with the others, kiss your yard goodbye… hehe.

That is the plan and yes, it has already begun.:rofl: I bought a 12 year old ice dragon maple ( getting air layered), then my wife bought me a Japanese maple ( getting air layered) as an early bday gift, and I may have got a 4 year old arakawa maple last night​:wink:.

I’ve never met the man, but I blame Ryan Neil. My wife, as well as my bank account, have beef with him.:rofl::rofl::rofl:

I told my wife that I only wanted a couple trees and she said “What!? Why? I like bonsai gardens”. I may have picked a winner. :laughing:

Stay off the web store…the pots are to die for. I feel like when I was a kid looking through the Sears Christmas catalog. I want this. Oh, and this. Oh man, that’s awesome! That one too! Might look at getting second job if you can’t stay out of the web store.
Good Luck!
