Trident Maple (Acer buergerianum)

Trident Maple

An excellent small shade tree for the patio, the lawn, along a street, or a townhouse. Deserving of much greater use given that it has nice fall foliage and attractive bark when it ages, as well as being a shade tree of smaller proportions. There aren't many better for providing shade for limited spaces.
