    After about 12 years of growing first in a box and then transferred to the ground for further growing this Acer Campestre, Field Maple, twig grew enough to be dug-up and boxed.

    Collected field maple tree

    Scott's Collected Hedge Maple

    I've talked a few times about collecting a Hedge Maple this year and I wanted to get a thread started. The weather this past week has been just awful with storms and strong winds, so I haven't been able to document any of the work with this guy. As a teaser I'll just post the one bad pic I...
