I obtained this Sharp's Japanese Maple stock last year from a local nursery and it underwent its first styling during the Fall.
At the end of Fall I decided that the maple needed a better secondary structure and potentially better development of primary branches. This year I will allow about 90% of the buds to grow freely. During the fall I will be choosing new branches to start compressing the structure and bringing finer ramification closer to the trunk.
