A 'clump' tree. It differs from the raft style in that all the trunks spring from a central point, as the Raft trunks flow along a line.

A Netsurani style tree

A well known raft style Trident maple. The tree was owned by Peter Adams and featured in his books. I was lucky enough to place the tree in this display.
