Walter Pall's main blog about bonsai and his work with trees from day to day. Lots of good pictures of good trees and lots of valuable information about bonsai.
Walter,A very harmonious tree. Looks almost 'completed'. Is it a challenge to keep the balance of the ramification so that it will not get too crowded, die-back of inner branches ect.?//Ken
Not really, just keep cutting back.WP
I just came across Vance Wood's critique of this tree on artofbonsai.org last night. Very beautiful tree, probably the most realistic looking bonsai I have ever laid eyes on.
This is a beautiful tree! It looks very much like our native Big Leaf Maple (acer macrophyllum) that grow everywhere in the Puget Sound area surrounding Seattle. It's very natural for them to grow as multi trunks, shooting their trunks and branches high into the air in all directions combining a final rounded triangular shape.The Big Leaf Maple is appropriately named by it's 30+ cm wide leaves. You've matched this tree perfectly.
