How hard is it to care for a bonsai tree?

Bonsai trees are easier to care for than you think! They require more attention than a basic houseplant but if you follow our care guides you should have no problem keeping your tree alive and healthy.

We have a care guide just for this tree, click here to view it.

What tools & supplies do I need?

For beginners we recommend using our balanced fertilizer & vitamin combo to keep your plant healthy and that you provide clean, filtered water as required.

We also recommend a pair of our basic pruning shears to allow you to trim and shape your new tree.

Both of these essential items have been paired together in our Fujiyama Starter Kit which we recommend purchasing along with your tree giving you a complete setup. The Fujiyama Starter Kit also comes with the Bonsai 101 Essential Tips book which walks you through the basic care instructions ensuring success as a beginner!.

How long will it take to get my new tree?

Most trees are shipped every Monday or Tuesday and received by customers on Thursday or Friday. We ship trees only on Monday or Tuesday to ensure they arrive healthy!

Trident Maple Bonsai Tree

Acer buergerianum

While the common name of this tree may bring thoughts of minty fresh breath to your mind, there is a method to the naming madness. Acer buergerianum, a deciduous native of Japan, China, and Korea, is marked by unique three-pointed leaves (not to be confused with its sister tree, the Japanese Maple, whose leaves sport five points), hence the “tri” in trident. The bark is equally attractive, with textured brownish-gray peeling away to reveal a bright orange surface, over time the colors blending together in a less intense shade.

This hardy species is forgiving of beginner enthusiasts, and will even reward your efforts with an eye-popping autumn color show. It is relatively drought-tolerant (translation – it won’t die if you forget to water it now and again), and can withstand temperatures as low as 10-15° F. What’s more, the roots are perfect for exposed root or root-over-rock, adding to the long list of reasons you should bring this beauty into your collection.

Pot: Ceramic Pot
Height: Approximately 8" – 14”
Age: 6 years

The trident maple came in incredible health. The packaging was done so well not a bit of soil or a leaf was out of place when it arrived. I have since ordered other trees and products from Dallas Bonsai due to their service and quality.
