A special Taikan-ten exhibition

The past Taikan-ten exhibition I was very fortunate to prep a display and tree’s for my good friends Mark and Ritta Cooper. The tree in question was a Momiji/Japanese mountain maple that has been at Aichi-en for the past 6-7 years and has previously been in Kokufu-ten exhibition.
It was always a tree that I admired here with an awesome trunk and superb leaf quality. The leaf quality is so good and the internode distance is so short it isn’t pinched in the spring. Certainly a rare find on any tree but, to find such a thick well tapered trunk certainly makes this a very special tree.
To cap it off, Mark and Ritta won a prize for the display and I couldn’t have been more pleased.
I’m very glad that it has found such good owners and I’m honoured that I had the chance to work on it before the exhibition. Thank you Mark and Ritta.
