can we dig up a well established acer and put it in a pot.what size pot would b required and how deep do the roots grow



If the acer is 'well established' then it will have a pretty extensive root system. The pot for such a tree would be very large, you would be unlikely to be able to move it. I would recommend leaving it in the ground.

Agree with Bulbaholic...would also add that in my experience Japanese maples are not the easiest things to transplant at the best of times.

I certainly wouldnt transplant it.
