This is one of my first field stock listing on my new website. It's been about a five-ish year process to get from the cutting stage to this point with it. There have been many countless things that have happened with this plant between those two points in time including; cuts, scrapes, pokes, heat exhaustion, freezing, psychosis, multiple moves, potting, planting out, watering, fertilizing, wiring, de-wiring, a hoop house collapse under the weight of snow, digging, pruning, more fretting and finally posting it here. We've been on a long journey together. 

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

This particular plant has two choices for the main leader and good trunk movement. The roots are well developed all around the base of the trunk, so it will be easy to make an excellent nebari.

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. 

This plant needs 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.
