I feel I need to just chime in and remind the OP that Tridents will thicken up nicely when popped into the ground even for just a few years. Your Missouri winters should be mild enough that roots would be ok in the ground..I wouldn't dare do it up my way.

I too have grown a soft spot for the noble Trident maple.

It's not in the ground, but in a grow-box:

July 2007:



Preparing air-layers, June 2008:



The severed air-layers, November 2008:



The mother-tree, 12 August 2011:



So yes, it's good advice top ut it in the ground, or in a large grow-box, and let itgrow, let it grow, let it blossom let it flo-o-owww...

Oh my (Nothing), too much Scotch tonight I'm afraid!... Laughing
