I am looking for a Maple Bonsai ( Trident, Japanese Maple, Katsura, etc). I am located in the New York area and was wondering if anyone recommends a nursery on the east coast or website to get one. Or if someone is selling one. Looking for a bonsai with nice taper, 10+ years old. Thanks!

I want to also mention I have perused the more well known sites such as Brussels Bonsai, Eastern leaf, Bonsai boys of New York. But wanted to see if anyone with more experience had any not as well known places I could check out.

I would avoid Eastern Leaf. Brussels has good stuff.

Check out the Bonsai Learning Center. They have stuff on their website as well as their eBay store.

All Shapes Bonsai in New Jersey is a good place. You can send them an email with what you're looking for and they usually respond pretty quick.

I'd sniff around @MACH5 for leads too.

Or try to buy his Arctic Trident.

For me, ☝️ Amur Maples mythical downfalls would be less of a headache to deal with than Regular Tridents, or Ungrafted J maples.

Walter found some decent Amur Trunks in connection with The Flower Market in Michigan. Don't know where these are now, but there is definitely Good it Stock around.

Bonsai Boy only sells glorified seedlings at very expensive prices. Avoid them.

Brussels Bonsai is a good place to buy from.
I just got a trident from them.
