Tree ID help

Do you know what tree this is? The quick picture I got of it isn't enough for me to ID it properly. Can you?

This is the largest picture I can post, but you can click for an even larger one.

knew that!


I see them in nurseries all the time now.

2nd ADDED: Link, Link, Link.

3rd ADDED: But how do we pronounce buergerianum?

I see in one place the leaves are opposite. Acer something?

Ficus carica? I feel like that's not right. I would have ID'd that right away.

Hi Chuck,

As you posted in such a timely manner, I think it's a Trident Maple. They have a nice shape and I think you could keep them smallish. Well, duh Emma, they are used for bonsai.

If I ignore the first 'e', it's burger-i-a-num. Easy enough, I guess. Now I wonder who was Buerger.

It is very lush looking! Don't you love 'spring green'!

Well, unlike some people, I speak American. Burger Maple it is.
