Beautiful little tree.

I'm sure you don't want to cut that branch off, but can it be turned so that branch is more to the rear and that bulge in the trunk isn't so prominent?

Yay spring! I checked on my trees in the basement last night and found a favorite little A. palmatum I didn't think was going to make it with 5 fat green buds breaking! Yay life!

Nice tree- Could use more ramification which would solve Jim's comment about the bulge (when the number one branch extends it will use the bulge to add thickness and be perfect), and perhaps a taller pot to match the trunk thickness and to get the root mound down a bit.

What type of setup do you have in regard to lighting, etc. I have been playing with the idea of housing some of my trees in my basement.

I have nothing special set up. There is dim light from a small transom window. I let them go solidly dormant before I move them in when it starts going below 20F at night outdoors. It's not really cold enough in the basement - only the upper 40's - but it keeps them dormant and safe until about this time of year depending on the tree and species. I've had better luck with more sensitive trees like maples this way than keeping them in the barn. So far the downside is they bud out a little early and I have to put them outdoors before frosts are over and I have to often shuttle them in and out at night to protect the leaves.

Dormant trees don't need light.

Wonderful little bonsai my friend...however, I think it's a shame to hide so much of the trunk.

I think a few more of the downward pointing leaves could come off and open it up a little more. Lovely little Trident. If it was mine I'd defoliate totally in a few weeks and get a crop of much smaller leaves.

I was going to say that too. It is quite nice, but I think some smaller leaves would help the overall composition.

Does anyone know if it is possible or even common to defoliate twice in a season? I am pretty sure it would not be something to do more than once in a while, mind you, I was just wondering how to get such small leaves like I see on so many other tridents.

Just curious Question

I know I wouldn't risk defoliation twice in one season on my Trident. I've heard it said that it can be done, if the tree is vigorous and healthy. Unfortunately my best looking one is old and not particularly vigorous compared to the free grown ones that I'm developing.

"...defoliate twice in a season...".

As you probably know Rob, works well with a healthy Ficus...but, I agree with Kev...ill advised with a Trident...
