I just moved into a new home and this tree is in the front yard. I have Shishio Hime and red dragon maples so Id like to use the seedlings from the tree for a try at grafting

The title is meant to say Is this a Japanese Maple? Good for grafting?

Yes, it is a Japanese maple, most likely just the straight species and sure, seedlings from this tree will make an excellent rootstock for grafts of your named forms. Have fun with your project!

Thank you very much. The tree didn't give me any seeds this year but I found a lot of little crimson red colored maples in my yard which I assume were from the previous year. I dug them all up and planted them in their own containers. Now they won't get mowed over :)You wouldn't believe the colors, I am not sure if it normal but they were like neon red. Either way I was surprised about the changes.
