    Someone in my neighborhood is looking to have this maple removed. I was considering giving it a new home. Any thoughts on the particular cultivar? Since I'm very new to this, I'm unsure of if it can be easily identified or if it could be one of several. Apologies for the low res photos

    @Southernwayfarer, good evening J, possibly Tamukeyama. It has all the characteristics of this cultivar, although the photos do make it a little difficult.
    Tamukeyama is a very resilient maple that has been sold in the 1000's.
    I like it tbh and if you can rescue it, then definatly give it a go.

    Pretty maple, certainly worth rescuing if possible.

    You're right though, it's difficult to impossible to authoritatively ID most Japanese Maples from photos. There are a few very distinctive cultivars, but after that...

    Acerholic's guess is as good as any.

    Right, but a very nice one anyway. It definitely deserves a new home. If it can wait after leaf fall, that would be the best time to uproot it.
