Acer Rubrum bleeding?

Hi all,

I recently acquired an Acer Rubrum and I’m trying to learn about the species and plan out timing of work. Does anyone know if Acer Rubrum will bleed like Japanese Maple if pruned in the Spring?

No direct experience, but I would anticipate that they will bleed in the spring. If you can protect from hard frost you can probably prune in the fall and seal (leave stubs on big cuts). Make a couple of minor cuts in the spring and report what happens.

Yes they also bleed in the spring

I would like to get some A. rubrum seed to start. Does anyone have a nice landscape tree with seed that they could send to me (the seed, not the tree!). If so, I will pay the postage. Send me a PM.
