Japanese Maple

This is a field grown garfted dwarf cultivar of Japanese Maple. The trunk and roots are phenominal and have perfect 360 degree roots. This tree was field grown for 20+yrs and was dug in 2006 as seen below

The same tree in late winter 2008 while potting it in a Chinese pot.
Lots of fine roots

Very good nebari

Nice shallow root pad with excellent roots

Nice fat root base, again very good roots

And now in a new pot and the next 2 years will be
devoted to working the new growth, back budding and
reducing the overall heigth of the tree. This has potential
to be a good bonsai in 5 years.
Rough virtual of the future size and potential shape of the tree.
