Here some photos of my Acer Palmatum, which I seeded in 1999 or 2000... A proces of a long time get it to the direction of a bonsai, but slowly i'm getting him in the good direction.
First photo is made in 2006:

Unfortunately I didn't make much photo's that time. The first 15 years I was mainly focussed to develop a very good nebari. Which I tried to get by pruning the strongest roots every year in early spring.

to encourage better grow it was planted in a wooden crate.
This was the tree in 2014:

The tree had also big wounds that had to heal in a longer period of time.
Year 2017:

Last weekend I did the winterpuning. Last years growth was a good one:

The tree is about 38 cm in hight. My goal is a kind of Hokidachi style tree, but asymmetrical: shaped by the wind from the left. I my opinion It has a solid base know, and I try go get it much better....

Very Nice Tree. Shows what consistent work can do!

Do you have a side-by-side of your.. elm? Very similar canopy in my minds eye!?
