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.
Have you considered removing the right lower branch?
Loosing that branch would be disasterous!
Awesome!!! Love the new pot and slight change in front.
I like the old pot better. The new pot seems a bit too wide and the pot colour implies that the tree grows in rocky mountain terrain, whereas the old pot has a tint of greenish colour suggesting a meadow. I think it's likelier that such a powerful lone tree would grow in a more fertile environment. The old pot, however, could be a little wider and higher, it looks overpowered by the tree. Maybe the relationship would be different if the tree were in leaf and/or will be allowed to grow a little wider. In any case, the tree is awe-inspiring
The new pot is a nice change and fits the tree very well. The color of the pot is unique and does have a totally different feel then the previous with the color and shape. I might add this is my gold standard when it comes to tridents. This tree is it. Thanx for sharing.tl
Looks like someone might have jacked one of your photos for personal profit:http://www.lousbonsai.biz/indoortrees.html?gclid=CKTZxOjckKACFQtfagodfmvmdAOr maybe you gave him permission? It's good that your bonsai is recognizable.
Thanks, this sort of thing happens too often.WP
I like the glace form the Aspinall pot better for this maple, Walter.Maybe it could be a bit larger but it fits very well without foliage.Wolfgang
Hello Walter,I prefer the new pot, since it makes a bigger contrast with the tree, and gives a bigger highlight to the tree...(i believe the new pot is the 2º photo).The pot wish I believe it was the old it was the "perfect twins" made for each other the texture, the color, they were a match...problem nothing realy stands out it's like a blur :)Thanks for sharing,Best regards from Portugal,David Carvalho
Walter,This tree will always be a source of inspiration for many. Thanks for posting the pics with both pots for comparison.It's interesting to note the changes. The color of the earlier pot was very compatible to the tree, particularly with full foliage.... it was a perfect match.Size-wise, the new pot blends very well with the tree and the leafless tree looks great. The planting 'clockwise' angle has greatly improved the beauty of this tree.Shaukat
Walter - The ramification on your trident is wonderful. Have you ever written any articles on developing tridents?
Simon,there is nothing special about tridents. I develop most broadleaved tree the same way.
