|Regarded as a trouble free tree, it is known for good drought tolerance but favours some summer irrigation in south-eastern Australia. Grown with a central leader it makes a good street tree. Most suitable for small landscapes and domestic gardens offering great autumn colour. In Australia, there have been problems selecting A. buergerianum suitable as street trees; most nursery-grown trees branch very low, and lack a central leader. If the tree is grown after formative pruning, an excellent shape can be planted: Trident Maple must be purchased as a single-leader tree|
