Here is a japanese maple var. unknow. That I found at a nursery under a pile of trees in the back .All the branches but one had been broken , cut off , or just died back .But thought it had a good trunk . So I asked how much they wanted for it . the anwser was you realy want that tree .....o.k. if you realy want it , its free. So I took the maple home not knowing what to do with it , but it was free. So when I got around to working on the tree I found out the died back was more then I thought. It turned out half the trunk rotten in the center. so I hollow the trunk out and sealed it . and here is what the japanese maple looks like now . Pot is 15 x 12 x 5 and the maple stands 3' from the table with 3 1/2 " trunk . comments welcome .
