Reckon it's winter there.

It looks like you can chop it down to 1 inch stubs or so all around. The sub trunks.

I like it!

I agree with MACH. Cut the large braches short to his virt and start building the secondary branching

Make certain that you leave at least one node when you cut. Otherwise you won't get any back budding on your branches since maples will not pop buds between the nodes.

I was having the same idea, it could be a really great tree like that, the trunk and nebari are already really nice! :)

Nice trunk. I too favor cutting short. Good work!
