This plant started life as a seedling in about 2017 or 2018....in 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 an absolutely massive tree with a huge base. See the images!. It is really two trees in one. The smaller, secondary trunk is a stem that originates from the primary trunk; it layered itself, grew vigorously and became its own tree. There are many stems to select from to make new leaders and apices with as well as many smaller stems to make branches with. The tree offers much depth, movement and mystery. 

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.
