This plant started life as a seedling in about 2017 or the before times. 

This is the last call for winter bare root shipping. It will be a while until more field stock is available. Get it while the gettin's good! There will be several more trees posted in the next few days.

This is a stupendous tree that is part of a batch of exceptionally well grown tridents. It has an unusual, whimsical trunk line. Continue the theme by removing large, dominant stubs on the top of the trunk, or keep the unusual, downward trending bit of trunk as a heavy branch and allowing one of the stubs to become even stronger. It's up to you. The nebari is excellent and huge. 

This tree will be a wonderful exercise in stem selection and cut back. 

It will back bud in the coming growing seasons giving you many stems to work with for  making branches and an apex.

Acer buergerianum is hardy to USDA zone 6. Plants are generally less hardy in pots and will need to be protected during winter in places with severe cold.

I cultivate trident maples in full sun. 

I have done the bulk of the root pruning for the season, but the plant should tolerate a bit more refinement pruning on the roots. Feel free to select the new leader and remove the one you don't want. Pot the plant in your preferred growing medium, water it, fertilize it, let it run and get healthy before doing any heavy work on it.
