Japanese maple nr. 8

This Japanese maple (Acer palmatum) I got in a trade in May. it was quite neglected and I thoutht I could refurbish ist somehow and then sell it. Now, only three months later it is coming very well. The trunk to the very right was tilted considerably and this gives a very nice fan shape to the group. The middle trunk will grow freely for a couple of years. Thus it will gain in girth considerably and clearly be the main trunk eventually. At the moment they are all a bit equal. This will also help the development of the nebari. I will probabaly not sell this finally. It is just too nice.
