Japanese Maple
"Old Man" Yamasaki was in his mid eighties when I first met him in 1984 he went on to live until the age of 104. This maple is one of the first specimens added to the Bonsai West collection in 1985. This tree is untraditional in its style but so was everything about Mr Yamasaki. When I tend this tree many memories of my early times at his nursery come back
