Quick Overview:

Acer buergerianum commonly called trident maple or three-toothed maple is native to China, Korea and Japan. It is a small, rounded, deciduous tree that typically grows rather slowly to 20-30′. Triangular, three-lobed leaves (to 3.5″ long) are glossy green above and pale green beneath. Variable but usually attractive fall color features shades of dark red and orange. Non-showy, greenish-yellow flowers bloom in spring (April-May). Samaras (to 1″ long) mature in fall. Exfoliating bark will develop on mature trunks.
