    If you want to put some like this on the Maples forum J, with perhaps a thread title that catches peoples eye. Then let's see what interest it brings. I think initially it will be about collating nurseries. I found one the other day tbh that I will add to the thread.
    Would you like to start it as it's your idea. I think people hear enough from me !!!

    Will do. As for hearing to much from you, forums wouldn’t exist without the hard work of others like yourself.
    I run 2 forums with the help of appointed mods and I know the unseen work involved.

    I don't know if I get any say in how the Maples folks do things, but the other forum areas have nursery recommendations in the Resource Discussion Thread, which would be this thread. And then Acerholic, you have just one place to look to find what needs to go into the Resource files for
    Maples: Nurseries Specializing in Maples in North America
    and
    Maples: Nurseries Specializing in Maples Outside of North America

    I don't know what to do about threads where you're publicizing who is carrying what this year. I guess your suggestion about having a thread in the main area works for that.

    Thanks Wendy, I have just replied to you on a PM. No need to go into formalities here. But suffice to say it is all in hand.

    I’m not sure where to post the Acer family list of Nikko Botanical Garden. So I’ll post here.

    Nikko Botanical Garden is a sister Botanical Garden of Koishikawa Botanical Garden. They had shared membership. But Nikko is a little too far so I have visited there only once.
    But it has a quite good website of the botanical lists.

    日光植物園のカエデ (u-tokyo.ac.jp)

    This is the original in Japanese. Google Translate makes Japanese names mixture of scientific names. So I choose original one. If you can’t translate automatically, please tell me.

    Koishikawa Botanical Garden also have more than 10 kinds of Acer. But I can’t find the list.

    I stumbled upon the following Canadian site which sells Japanese maples and thought perhaps someone knowledgeable may want to check it out: Japanese Maples – Glad Gardens.

    Looks a good site for our Canadian friends here. Quite high prices, but tbh a lot of maples are these days.

    I've had this website in my bookmarks for years, and I don't think I mentioned it here : Plantes du Japon (home page)

    It might be of some interest not only for maple lovers, but also for those looking for info on native plants. It's in French, but nowadays, with online translation tools, that shouldn't be a problem.

    The terminology is a bit outdated, but it's full of very interesting info on Japanese names, and the location of native maples in Japan :

    Plantes du Japon ("ACERACEES")

    PS : the "navigation" is not that easy to find what you want...

    Just seen this M, I have no update for you. It is still, showing that it is unreachable.

    I hope he's not dead like the other Japanese fellow whose site disappeared. Hopefully just changed URL.

    Yano is alive and as well as can be hoped, for someone who takes care of as many maples as he!

    I edited a page on Wikipedia:

    Classification des érables — Wikipédia

    There's still some work to do there, but the French page based on Jean-Louis Hélardot' website is the best one yet in any language.

    There's only one version in another language, Polish, and it's not as good :
    Systematyka klonów – Wikipedia, wolna encyklopedia

    "Maple classification" doesn't yield any result, the page that is the most relevant is very general :

    Maple - Wikipedia

    Any volunteers to help, in English, French, Polish, Italian or any other language, mentioning the Maple Society, of course?...

    Umm. Earlier this year I put together a complete classification of the species based on Dan Crowley's work for the IDS, and the maple Species Group. I worked extensively with Dan on it (since it's really his classification, though it hadn't been formalized.)

    It can be found at

    Classification of Acer after the Accepted Names - Maple Society

    which is a rather awkward name, granted,

    or more precisely

    https://maplesociety.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/classificationAcerMarch2021-vf2.pdf

    The Accepted Names is not a classification, just a list. As far as I know the above classification is the most current available reference in the material.

    You can also find de Jong's 2002 classification on the OSI area:

    Worldwide Maple Diversity, Piet C. de Jong, 2002 - Maple Society

    (How these names came to be is a complete mystery to me.)

    There is a summary of classifications in the species area of the MS site, though I left the most recent work missing (beyond a mention) from there, for political reasons.

    Proposed Classifications of Acer - Maple Society

    The paper from Li et al is particularly important.

    Anyone know if Mt. Hood Maples went out of business? I ordered a 'Kawaii' from them and it was a great specimen.

    Unfortunately Ambleside Gardens in Nj is officially closed, a great loss for us in the tri-state area. Dave the owner was a class act, 56 yrs in business that started with his father. He had very reasonable prices, gave personal attention to each and every customer and his selection was enormous and of amazing quality. Not sure where to go in the area, if anyone has any suggestions. The places I’ve tried lately are priced absurdly and don’t have the selection or quality I was used too. Ambleside was truly a hidden gem.

    Thanks for posting this. I have updated the Resource page. They've posted some parting notes, so I have left the link.
