    I am curious as to how to create a hybrid maple tree and how long it typically takes to cultivate a hybrid. I believe this is a decades long pursuit, but I'm hoping it's not always.

    The two cultivars I have in mind are the laceleaf japanese maple and the paperbark maple. The desired hybrid would have the laceleaf's leaves with the paperbark's bark.

    Is this just a fantasy as opposed to a practical idea?

    Your feedback would be very much appreciated.
