Don’t know whether this is a maple to begin with. I originally collected the little seedling from a trail south of where I live. The twin trunk looked interesting to me at that time, so I scooped it up while taking a jog. It’s been five years, and now it is somewhat root bound. So much so that it’s pushing the soil up the rim of the pot. I decided to repot it into a normal plastic pot to further develop its trunk. I trimmed down the tree extensively, hoping to develop some taper. On the left trunk, I left a sacrifice branch which comes out from the back.
Repotting the Maple (?!)
