Trident Maple – Acer buergeranum

gold line

Trident maple is a medium-sized tree whose bark peels away in patches creating gray, brown and

orange mottling. Its glossy, three-lobed leaves turn yellow, orange and red in the fall. Even though

it is a handsome patio or lawn tree, its abundant seedlings can be a nuisance.  It is native to Japan.
