Does such a thing exist or would I have to start one and wait for the leaf experts to find me? :wink:

Hi guys

It is an acer aka Japanese Maple. Thanks for the help. It was doing my head in. I think DJ gets the prize for both the worst joke and getting the answer first. Please thank your colleague for me as well mate.

Disclaimer: There isn't actually a prize.
