Nice work Mr. Plant. I too would love to see the tree when it is in its fresh leaves (for the color and all). I guess some folks have never tried to bend the trunk of a mature maple, especially to get the subtle change described. I think it works very, very well as it sits. Have you had good luck in maintaining ramification on these down south? I kept having them shed branches in Arkansas, but it may have just been me.

Thanks all!

Here is a pic taken today of the tree in it's new pot and in leaf.  It needs to be thinned out but that will wait till later this spring.  I want to have as much leaf mass as possible to encourage new roots to develop before I trim out the unnecessary foliage

Randy, very nice maple! It is easy to tell from it's appearance how much work you have put into this tree. I think you have very good branch placement, nice ramification, and the display in the last photo is awesome. Well done! Great photo to just sit and study...and admire. Thanks for sharing this one, Don.
