Today I collected an awesome tree Acer Grandidentatum " Big Toothed Maple" I will post pics soon.
I am super stoked about this little tree very nice.
Just curious if anyone else out there have any of these in a pot?
I would love to see some pictures of others if they are out there.
This one is going to make a very nice bonsai someday.:)

Maybe not a specific match...but a Google search for "Acer Grandidentatum bonsai tree" shied several maple images....maybe something close for ideas and tree growth habits.

I have a few bigtooth maples I collected a couple years ago. They can handle more sun than JM but they are slow to progress as they are single flush only. I let mine grow all season and prune in early fall.

This tree was elk and deer pruned definitely in need of some grooming.
@aml1014 Thanks for the share, not much info out there on this tree species, but from what I have seen growing around here they have a lot of potential.

I have one, but I have been growing it in the ground for the last couple years. As @aml1014 said, they are not the fastest growing maples. Mine is native, and it grows about 1-2 feet per season. I will dug it out in the next couple weeks to do some root work and put it back in the ground.

I'm curious about the species too. To add to the discussion, they will air layer successfully.

Here is the update as of today.
Big tooth are great maples for our area in the high desert of Oregon east of the Cascades. They have small well-shaped leaves with great color. They tolerate heat, drought, and wind. They resist our May killing frosts. We have recorded at least light frosts on 362 days of the year. They gain trunk diameter nicely. They are easy to grow from seeds. What's not to like! I'm working on a clump group....

...and this big tooth.
Wow those are looking nice! Thanks for the update. I’ve got one I just chopped. I’m shooting for 3inch diameter and about 9-12in tall.
