Acer buergerianum is commonly known as Trident maple. Trident Maple is a very attractive small maple, effective as a lawn specimen, patio or shade tree. It has interesting flaky bark, and has a neat appearance, except for the hanging seeds in the winter. It tolerates most soils, with light to moderate moisture, and is quite dependable once established. It may require regularly scheduled light top-trimming (but not necessarily shearing) of vigorous top shoots to maintain its height below 25. Known to tolerate air pollution.
