Japanese maple #1 repotted in better position

The big maple has slowed down with growth. Threee yers ago it was planted in a position which I finally decided to change back to the old one again. So it was all done in an hour with Marco's help. The last image is the position before in July 2013.

Hi Walter,

I'm really surprised to see a hardy tree being transplanted in summer, with the leaves on! So that being said, what is the range of possible times that you work within?

Well, learn from the pros. Japanese maple in my climate: beginning of April until second week in May, end of August to middle of September. Most of this time the foliage is on already or still. There is more to bonsai than your book tells you.

Walter, This is by far my favorite tree of yours. Do you have any earlier pictures to show the progress of this tree. Also was it a nursery stock of collected? Thanks for all of your advice and pictures, truly inspirational!

The majority of my better trees are well documented in my gallery. There one can see dozens of images from the very start when in got them to today. There is no need for me to repost these pictures again. Just google 'Walter Pall bonsai gallery'.
