Add a closeup of the leaves.

Looking at it on closeup, I would guess a threadleaf type Acer palmatum. Just a guess.

could also be a dissectum

phitamines would have to look at a picture

This is dissectum(laceleaf, cutleaf)


This is threadleaf (linearilobum, bamboo leaf)

There are many cultivars of both.
Dissectum branches also tend to be more 'weeping' though not extremely. This looks a little more like mature dissectum to me, but it could be either.
