66. Acer buergeranum – Trident Maple
Scientific Name: Acer buergeranum
Also called the three-toothed maple, both names refer to the distinctive 3-lobed leaves. Birds do not care for this particular maple’s seeds. It is a popular choice for bonsai because it responds well to the leaf reduction and ramification techniques. It is also commonly used as a shade tree near patios. It is popular in Australia because of its drought tolerance.
