Tree Species: Trident Maple
Owner: Ian Young – NIBS member since 1993 and current club Chairperson
Potter if Known: Korean
History: This is a tree with origins in Japan and was added to Ian’s collection in 2011 after seeing it on the sale benches at Willowbog Bonsai. The tree is a beautiful example of Root over rock style.The pot was originally swapped for a Wallsall Ceramics pot but was changed this year to see if a shallower pot was a better option. This suits the tree well but a new higher quality pot is being planned for 2017.
This tree was selected for Bonsai30 as a top example in Ireland of Root over Rock style.
