Trident Maple Bonsai
Acer buergerianum is a deciduous maple native to China, Japan, and Korea. In its natural environment this tree can grow to 20-30 feet in height and the same size in width. The tree can be distinguished from Acer palmatum by its three-lobed leaves, as opposed to five on the leaves of the Japanese Maple.
The Trident Maple has an airy crown of foliage comprised of glossy green three-pointed leaves that turn gorgeous shades of yellow, orange, and red in autumn. The trunk is thick and richly textured in peeling orange-brown bark, a trait that draws bonsai enthusiasts to this particular maple. The roots readily form interesting gnarls perfect for exposed root styles. In April to May the tree develops modest yellow-green blooms.

- Fantastic tree, and great for the price!
Overall Rating Quality ValueI recently purchased this Trident Maple Bonsai Tree, and was very impressed about everything with it. The packaging was done well. It seemed to have been recently pruned, so it gives me time to do my research more on pruning. The price was also fantastic compared to other places I have looked. Shipping was very fast, and no damage was done to the plant. It did come with a humidity tray, which I wasnt aware of so I purchased one with it, so I was going to use the extra tray, but it is cracked so I wont be able to use it after all. Great communication from seller as well. I look forward to doing more business after I get a better understanding on Bonsai. Thank you.
