This is short story of my Acer palmatum. Just few pictures from development and recent result after wiring. Definitely not traditional acer bonsai tree. It has some challenges like unbalanced nebari, big wound at nebari level, wound after big chop, and some others. Basically, complicated tree but I will try to make it onto nice looking natural bonsai. Long way to go, but I can see what is doable, hope it will work. Anyway it will be fun to work with.

|In October 2010 chopped down, ugly bottom branch removed, still not decided for which branch I will go for apex.|
|April 2012, finally with current basic structure defined.|
|And after recent wiring session ...|
