Here is a cutting from a trident maple that came from Gary Wood in ’02. It was rooted in early 2007 about pencil-thick, planted in the ground in mid-summer, and left to grow in place through present time. (The parent tree is right behind it).
Here is a photo of the tree, circled in red and yellow taken in early 2008, after growing for one season; 2007.
Here is the same tree, taken at the end it’s second growing season; 2008. The tree is circled again in red and yellow.
It grew to about 10′ tall in ’08, and ended up up about 1″ thick just above the soil. It had a goofy bend in the trunk that is still visible in this photo, but smoothed out during the 2009 growing season. This one seems to have a tendency to flatten out, so I’m watching it to understand what causes…
