Field maple #8 rescued

Field maple., Acer camestre, collected in Germany in 1991, first image of 1993, pot by Peter Krebs, 60 cm high. This was a promising field maple until 2006. Then the upper left two thick branches or sub-trunks died for unknown reasons. Then it was just a wreck and seemed worthless. I had given up this tree and offered it for sale. In eight years no one was even interested. Now I took another look at what was left. And then in one afternoon the whole thing was wired again. It is not for sale anymore. I think it will look like a very realistic old maple tree.
