The Autumn Blaze Maple is one of the most popular new tree introductions in history.
Brilliant fall color without the mess and maintenance! You plant it and forget it.
Municipalities love these trees because they are very disease-resistant. They're not bothered by car exhaust and they don't drop seed pods.
Autumn Blaze Maples are strong trees that resist ice damage and high winds. They adapt to a large range of soil conditions and climates.
The Autumn Blaze Maple™ is a hybrid of two famous trees, the red and silver maples, and it soon surpassed them in looks and popularity. It captured the two trees' quality characteristics, such as brilliant red color, dense branching, and rapid growth rate.
This is a clearly superior tree that you won't see in the big box stores for another 10 years.
They only carry trees once the general public is familiar with them. As a result, they offer cultivars that may be disease and insect prone.
We give the Autumn Blaze our highest recommendation.
Landscape Professionals have put this tree in short supply, so we do recommend you order while supplies are available.

Specific Directions for Autumn Blaze Red Maple Tree
Your Autumn Blaze Maple will thrive in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Place it in an open area that provides enough room for it to grow. Autumn Blaze Maple Trees can get 30 - 40 feet wide and 40 to 50 feet tall.
Autumn Blaze Maples prefer acidic soil, but will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Your tree will not need any extra water unless you're experiencing drought like conditions. Resist the urge to over water your Autumn Blaze maple and mimic your natural environment.
In the early Spring and Fall fertilize your Autumn Blaze Maple with a fertilizer that's high in nitrogen. Fertilizers that start with high numbers like "16-4-8," or "12-4-8," are high in nitrogen and will be best for your tree in order to provide you with new growth and beautiful red foliage every Fall.
|Step 1 - Dig Your Hole
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Autumn Blaze Red Maple Tree.
|Step 2 - Place Your Plant
Next, separate the roots of your Autumn Blaze Red Maple Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
|Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
