Trident maples (Acer buergerianum) make excellent bonsai due to their small, three-lobed leaves. The tree has thick gnarly roots and a readily thickening trunk. In the fall the leaves turn from green to very attractive shades of red, orange, and yellow. The trees for this workshop are in ceramic pots and are about 12 inches tall. The focus of this workshop will be on the initial styling and wiring of the tree. Care instructions will be included. All skill levels are welcome.
This program meets in person at the Arboretum.
