The Trident Maple is a deciduous tree with beautiful 3 inch wide, tri-lobed leaves, glossy green above and pale undersides which turn various shades of red, orange, and yellow in autumn. The Trident Maple is a very popular choice to use for bonsia. The Trident Maple can be trained to be a single trunk tree and pruned to make it branch higher, allowing passage below its broad, oval to rounded canopy. With its moderate growth rate, attractive orange-brown peeling bark, and easy maintenance, the Trident Maple is popular as a patio or street tree. The Trident Maple can reach 30-45 feet in height and has a width of 25 feet. It's cold hardy to zone 4. The Trident Maple likes full sun to partial shade. It tolerates a wide range of soil types. Prefers deep, moist soil but will grow in poor soil.
