--EARLY SPRING 3rd year--

I will need to create a better top for
this trident maple bonsai. 

Also i need to pull down second branch on 
the left.

--WINTER 2nd year--

I gave my tree a brand new bonsai pot.
And I places it in another angle in the pot.
So it has a new front view.

--SUMMER, second year--

The bonsai is growing too vigorous in 
the top branches and not enough in the 
lower branches. 
This has to be corrected by pruning back 
the top branches.

Notes : Next year I will do some
leafpruning to get even smaller
leafs. And I need a new pot.

--SPRING, first year in my possession--

This is one of the first bonsai I bought.
I bought it at a bonsai nursery in the winter
I payed about 90 uds or euro.
The main reason I choise especially this 
one, is because of the thick stem and
good nerabi(surface roots).
The canopy of this bonsai will need 
a lot of years to improve.

The top is too heavy and has to be removed.

But anyway its easier to improve the canopy 
then to grow a big stem and good surface
