Artistically Pruned Japanese Maple

Northampton, MA (Leeds)

This Japanese maple was planted by the client when the house was constructed about 20 years ago. It had not been pruned properly during that time. The tree more resembled Snuffleupagus then it did a contorted, windswept & architecturally impressive tree that it became.

Before: The Japanese Maple, always a good looking small tree, was not showing off its true character.
