Maples

Just a few pics of some Acers taken in the bright sunshine against a rather poor background. The trees are growing vigorously and the new extension growth needs trimmed constantly to try to build up ramification. One of them has a little leaf scorch because of the hot sunshine but otherwise they are doing well.

The two tall green leafed  trees need their canopies widened at the base to create a more convincing image. This is an ongoing objective in this years development although there has not been much progress. part of the reason is that the extension growth this year has had fairly long inter nodes and have been trimmed back. I will leaf prune now to try and encourage more compact growth and smaller leaves.
