Just a little more compact. Two years in Rochester.

So, this tree is now mine, but its not in good shape.  It looks like its in different soil than when it was last pictured, and if that's the case, I'd be willing to bet **I** was even the one to repot it.  Hopefully, I'll be able to nurse it back to health and likely repot it this spring.

Look at the leaf growth pattern. If they grow in threes, left right and center, I say Maple, but just looking at the leaf, it looks like Sweet gum . Sweet gum leaves grow in clusters, and maple in a left, right, center pattern.
Thank you for chiming in Larry.  I looked up the Sweet Gum species, but they don't seem to have leaves like this.  I'm still leaning towards Maple, just can't seem to find the exact sp.

I had to open the last styled pic up and compare it with this one.  The changes are subtle, but it is much improved ...if that makes sense.  Earlier I'd asked about reducing the left side.  I'm not sure what I was seeing before, but the most recent styling cements that as NOT the way to go.  (As if you were taking styling tips from me to begin with...)

Its hard to tell since the angle seems to be from a little lower in the most recent picture, but have you let the apex grow just a bit?

I decided to get some moss onto the tree as it has been cooler the last few days instead of the incredibly heat we have been having and that will help the moss settle slightly.

I will have to watch it though so that the moss does not dry out.
