Starting Maple Trees in Pots

Last fall I was given little shoots of some red maple trees. They all have a great root base established now, however, they are very tiny, some are less than a foot tall. My concern is we live in a very open area with a lot of wind. Should I continue growing them in small flower pots until they grow a little more, or should I transplant them now.

We bought some very small bare root trees last year and planted them then. I staked them because we get some high winds also. I tied them with strips of nylon net in several places. They're doing fine now and growing already.

Like Glenn's Mom said, I think you can plant them now as long as you stake them.
