First prune and wiring of a Deshojo Maple. ... Before and after.
After removing deadwood, forks of over 2 branches, improperly placed branches etc, I tried to reduce the congested areas and wire the branches so the tips all have their own space.
The tree has been cleaned, with deadwood removed from the trunk and branches. Moss was removed from around the bottom of the trunk, revealing a nebari in need of some work; a future project perhaps?!
Below is a close up showing the trunk pre-clean.
The tree will be root pruned and re-potted in Spring in a more free draining soil mix, which with regular feeding and pruning, should improve the health and vigor of the tree.

I will post some pictures and descriptions of how my trees are developing, and any new projects I'm starting.
