I dug this maple from my yard last year and it grew quite well. This year I decided to give it a repot and a trim with the idea of getting it on the correct path and hopefully in a bonsai pot in 3 to 5 years. I enjoy a short large trunk trident so it was time to see if I can grow one.
This is how the little guy looked prior to this years intervention.
This is the after look. Of course there is a lot of work to be done over the coming years but it may have a future.
