    This is a small pinion pine that I collected from relatives land in Utah. It is doing well so far in a mix of fine washed diotomacious earth treating with liquid fertilizer most waterings.

    Trident maple trunk chop problems

    Hello all, I have a trident maple growing over a rock that I trunk chopped three seasons ago. No buds appeared after the first year. The second year I tried some grafting that did not take. This is the third season, and I’m at a bit of a loss. I know the tree is still alive because of the...

    Defoliation Day

    My maples have lengthened and lignified, so I took the day to defoliate three. I’ve not done it for years, but the growth was so vigorous in their new home, decided this was the year. FIVE GALLONS OF LEAVES! Considering it was only 3 trees, sure seemed like a heck of a lot of leaves. I did...

    Hi There, :) My beloved trident male is confirming my lack of knowledge and care regarding the species. My leaves started to show signs of leaf burn as the only available place I have for this plant is in a place that receives the last 3-4hours of partial shade sunlight of the day. The rest...

    Out of my element...Trident Maple

    So my brother-in-law gave me this bonsai because he claimed it was too far gone to fix. I KNOW it isn't but I also know that I don't know how to fix it. I figured this was the best place to ask since I have absolutely zero experience in this stuff. Three questions for the experts: 1. Is it a...

    The first bonsai tree I ever purchases was a Trident maple from Brussels Bonsai. It was your stereotypical Stick-in-a-Pot. As purchased in the fall of 2015. Unlike most of the trees I bought back when I first started, I didn't do anything with this tree for over a year. Here's how she...

    Knobby Trident

    Just thought I'd start a thread on this trident I picked up on the FB auction. It's got some issues, but I'm excited to see where I can take it. The obvious issue is the lack of taper in the upper section. I've been searching for a new leader to cut back to. Here is my first idea...

    Trident Chop Advice : This one got away from me a little

    Here's a trident that's been in the ground since spring 2014. I was envisioning a smaller tree (2-3" dia) with a more naturalistic canopy, but it's really starting to get top heavy where all the branches join. I probably should have removed a branch or 2 last year but was getting greedy on...
