Trident Maple Forest - 7 Trees
Forest plantings require species that are somewhat upright growing, as well as those that can tolerate a shallow root system. Trident Maple, or Acer buergerianum, is a perfect choice. This deciduous native of Japan, China, and Korea may grow to 20-30 feet in its natural habitat and may be identified by its three-lobed leaves (as opposed to Acer palmatum which has five-lobed foliage). Tridents makes a beautiful 5, 7, or 9 tree forest both for its stunning fall color and ease of care.
While the Trident Maple does have a fairly thick trunk, it is also straight and consistent which makes it a great choice for a forest. The leaves are small for a maple – up to three inches wide – which will allow the grouping to look proportionate. The root system typically develops surface gnarls, which can add visual interest to a 7 tree planting. The red, orange, and yellow colors of the leaves in fall lend a striking point of interest to this group.
