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 Forest - 7 Trees

Acer buergerianum

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.

Pot: Ceramic Pot
Height: Approximately 12" – 18”
