"Autumn" color on Trident

Post  Todd Ellis on Wed Jul 31, 2013 1:26 pm

I air layered the top of a large Trident Maple this year. The new roots were minimal but enough (hopefully) to sustain this tree through the Winter, into Spring. The good news is that the foliage did not wilt and dry off; it turned color instead... it is approx 48 inches or 100 cm tall:



Here is the parent tree after the air layer was removed (approx 48 inches, or 100 cm, tall):

Todd, it looks to me that the air layer is under stress.

I suggest cutting off at least 50% of all the branches for the health and successful overwintering of the tree. Remember it's a Trident maple and can easily grow much taller than what you have now in only one year, especially in your climate next season, if it survives.

Bill

PS: Good luck Todd!
