Autumn Blaze Maple

Municipalities Demand this Tree and so should you!


The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back the growth that was trimmed.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you better, thicker shade the first full growing season.

Municipalities demand this tree and you should too! Why? • Traffic stopping, reliable red fall color • The fastest growing maple...3-5 feet or more a year! • Insect & Disease Resistant • Pleasing, uniform shape • Minimal mess after its leaves drop in the fall Great when planted alone or along roads. Winner of the: • 2004 Urban Tree of the Year • 2003 Urban Tree of the Year • 1997 Tree of the Year by the Iowa Nursery and Landscape Association 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.

Large Size

It's Easy to Plant your Autumn Blaze Maple

Specific Directions for Autumn Blaze Maple

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 Maple.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Autumn Blaze Maple gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Autumn Blaze Maple again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

This tree went from 3 ft. to 7 ft. in just one season. For a maple, that seemed extraordinary for me. The leaves in spring and summer are a nice green and the red fall foliage was striking. Thanks for a great product.

Great tree, I planted my Autumn Blaze Maple 11 years ago. It is huge and beautiful!

By: Cindy
Our autumn blaze maple is bright orange right now-and thriving! Its still a small tree-but beautiful! Weve actually ordered several trees this past year and they all look great-very healthy!!

By: Sandy
We are so pleased with this tree! We planted this tree for our new born and have since watched them grow together. Its planted on the corner of our property near the street in full sun and the colors are spectacular! Last fall the colors were a nice bronze red and this year they were a brilliant red. We cant wait to see what next fall will bring.

My neighbors and I planted three Autumn Blaze Maple trees - we call them the triplets - on an inner city street in Boston ,the City would not, and they have been incredibly successful. They have grown at least the three feet in height as hoped, they have survived abuse via parked cars, inconsiderate pedestrians, snow, and ,other than rainfall, erratic watering. While two are significantly bigger than the remaining one, they are all hardy and are doing well.

By: Brett in Cartersville, GA
Maple tree arrived very healthy , left in shade for first two days. I planted it on the third day it grew almost a foot in the first week. We did have a lot of rain that month. I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANY TREE GROW LIKE THAT IN THE FIRST WEEK AFTER BEING TRANSPLANTED.

The Autumn Blaze tree I bought last fall was received in good condition. I planted it according to directions and it survived the Maine winter. This spring it came alive and started to produce new branches. At this time it appears to have a successful planting.

By: Mikey in Long Island, NY
We planted our Autumn Blaze Maple tree at the end of last summer. In the spring of this year my daughter got a new puppy. The puppy decided to chew the tree in half about 12 inches from the ground. There was nothing left but the main trunk of the tree. I thought the tree was a goner. We planted a different tree in that spot, but decided to keep this tree in the container from the other one. Surprisingly enough the Autumn Blaze Red Maple sprouted 2 new branches that grew all summer long. At the end of the summer the branches had grown about a foot. This fall the leaves turned a beautiful bright red. This is one hardy tree...

By: Troy in Baldwin, WI
I planted my Autumn Blaze in 1 year ago in the late Fall. The tree is now over 6ft tall and has the bright red leaves as seen in the pictures. This tree is a replacement to a Poplar that fell in a storm in the back yard. The wife likes the colors and wants another for the front yard. I simply dug a hole, put the fertilizer pill in per the directions and planted the tree. No special treatment other than that. The tree has held up well to the Wisconsin winter.

By: Charles
Thank you so much for your tree. It is still young and thriving. I know that it is going to be a great addition for my landscape.

By: Bette
We are using this tree for shade on our home. I cant believe how this tree has grown! We plan on buying more in 2009. So far I dont have anything negative to say.

I bought two of these autumn blazes and put them on the parkway in front of my home. They are growing great and, although small, got the true autumn blaze look this fall. I have purchased several trees from FGT and been satisfied with them all. I am a repeat customer.

By: Tiffany in West Virginia
A great tree! We planted the Autumn Blaze maple tree on our new construction lot. We were worried because of the condition of the soil after construction. However, the maple tree is doing great. It bloomed last spring and turned red this fall.

By: Lorenzo
This is an interesting Maple tree, not like any others that I have planted. Nice looking and full of leaves. It is only 4 tall now and it looks almost full grown. I cant wait to see this tree mature.

By: Don
Only got about 15" of growth this year. May be due to deer chewing on it in early spring before I fenced in the sapling.

By: Larry
The tree arrived and looks very good. Im following the instructions and have it in the shade after watering it. Just wanted to let you know that it arrived in very good shape. Thanks.

By: Don in Sulphur, LA
This tree arrived in great condition. Due to the hurricanes, and the loss of 25 trees on my property, my Autumn Blaze maple tree is a welcomed sight. Even though I am in zone 9, I think this tree will make it. I will keep you all posted.

By: Elizabeth
We bought an Autumn Blaze Maple in 2005 to put the our centre front yard.  It is a beautiful tree!  We have many people slow down or stop in our front to look at the awesome colour of this amazing tree!

By: Mark
Planted in the back yard. Tree is now about 5 foot tall. It is growing fast with limbs reaching a 4 foot spread and trunk about 3/4" diameter.

By: Annette Birchmore
Ive had my Autumn Blaze maple lest than a year and it has done just wonderful it,s almost as tall as my house.thanks for my beautiful tree.

By: Julie Cunningham
I was very excited to get my tree. My husband and I followed the directions and planted it in our backyard, carefully choosing the right spot. We were careful in doing this correctly, it was a little pricey for the size and didn't want to mess it up. This tree seemed like it was going to be a beautiful tree. I am so sad, this tree lost every leaf it had from the day it was put into the ground. I check on it daily to see if anything has started to produce on the branches, and nothing. I had purchased 2 other trees at the same time, planted them the same way and according to the directions, they are doing well. But, the Autumn Blaze Maple was one I was looking forward to having in my yard. The pics are gorgeous, but I won't spend the money to get another one. We did everything correctly and babied it to get it off to a good start. Too bad.

By: Eric
We ordered 9 trees and they arrived promptly, although some were damaged due to be packed 2 to a box with one of them upside down. Even with the damage they are growing fine. However 1 of the 9 trees did not make it this year. Overall, I will be ordering more them soon. We need about 24 more of them.

By: Nancy in Elysburg , Pa.
I purchased the Autumn Blaze Maple tree this year. I love the vivid red color of the leaves in fall. It is definitely a welcomed addition to my yard.

By: Kathleen
So far, this tree is growing very nicely. We planted a maple for each of our two sons. It was a great family project. It is growing well and time will tell!!

By: Debora
We planted the tree last summer and it is doing great..it has grown about 4 inches in the past few months. It will take a few years for it to really look like a tree but it is extremely healthy.

By: Barbra Bundy
This is so pretty in the fall. People driving by stop to look at it. Beautiful tree for fall colors.

By: ggr1868
Though the maple trees are less than a year old and are quite small, they have come along in a healthy manner. ,We live on a farm with deer nearby so it was necessary to protect the trees within wire caging at this early stage from the nibblings of the four-legged population., If the Autumn Blaze Maple trees grow as advertised, even three more feet next year should make for a more significant display of their coloration. Plan on ordering more once we determine their placement.

By: Josh
I wasnt sure last fall when I purchased the tree that it was more than a stick but this spring it has really started growing. I can't wait until the fall to see the color change.

By: Kelly Curiel
This tree is doing very well.

By: Jeanne Nivard
We just bought this tree last summer so it has not had enough time to show us what it can do. It is still alive through this tepid winter we have had. Better to review this after it has been here for 3 years. That is how long it takes I have found for any kind of plant to establish itself.

By: Dean - Connecticut
Wow - These trees grow fast! About 3 feet high a year. Great product and company.

By: Karma
My tree arrived Friday, Sept 16 2011. Look good considering how far it traveled, leave were not damaged. Left it out side for 3-days in a sheltered area just like the instructions stated. Planted and staked it on the 19th. So excited! Hope to remember to post next year to let you know how the tree is doing : )

I bought an Autumn Blaze in Spring, 2010, following a terrifically brutal ice storm in the Winter. It did well last summer, blazed gloriously last Fall, made it throught the Winter, and now, in the midst of the worst heat in decades, is thriving. It is amazing and we love it.

By: Nathan
Love this tree! I planted a 3ft tree last spring (2013). It looked healthy but only grew to 5ft by fall, but in it's second year in the ground, it has grown to over 15ft tall in only a couple months, and is still tipped with new growth. This tree is growing in damp, clay rich soils, and is too far south for it's recommended habitat (in Houston, TX), but it loves it. I amended the soil with sulfur to make it more acidity, watered it heavily, fertilized it, and have twice treated it with imidacloprid (so no bugs). Thankfully, I planted it with enough room for the full size tree to clear my house.. which it's on track to!

By: Brenda Nunley
I planted the Autumn Blaze Maple in late spring to early summer, can't remember. I made sure that it had the proper planting material and gave it plenty of water. This tree has not grown as expected and this fall the leaves have turned gold and then brown, not red. There are red veins in the stems but no glorious red leaves as expected. What could be wrong?

By: Lois, Villa Park, IL
I am so thrilled - my Autumn Blaze was delivered this am (ordered on Wed., arrived Sat. am) and is a beautiful little tree about 6 ft. I was surprised to see how many leaves were on the tree and how healthy it looks. Great job,'Fast growing Trees' !! Many thanks to you.

By: Caitlin Herndon
We purchased this tree about 2-3 years ago and it has at least tripled in height since we planted it. We have not had the bright red leaves we expected, but that could be attributed to dry conditions (its fall colors were better the year we had more rain). Overall it's a lovely tree that we truly enjoy.

By: Justin Leff
Hardy tree. Displayed nice 'blaze" coloring in spring and has been growing slowly but steadily in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

By: Jennifer

I or festered my tree back in October or november I think and it still looks Like the same tree I planted warm it came I'm. Not leaves just a sad looking branch. Can anybody help with suggestions or did I toss $100 down the toilet??

By: Sharon Previti
I planted my tree in October, 2012. It was very small and the neighbors now tell me they didn't want to tell me that it would never grow. Now my neighbors are all coming up to me to ask me what kind of tree it is. It has grown 4 feet already and I believe it well at least be 5 feet taller by October. I thought 3 feet was fast but this little thing is gone crazy! Everyone in the neighborhood is keeping an eye out to see how it grows every day. I'm thrilled with fast growing trees and will be a loyal customer in years to come.l

Planted my 5 ft Autumn Blaze Maple in early June of 2013. It has already grown over 2 ft. Today is July 29 of 2013. I will keep you posted on a yearly basis. I planted one eight years ago and it was so pretty. Someone dug it up and stole it 3 years ago. I recommend this tree to anyone that loves beautiful shade trees. Hardy and fast growing.

By: kane
my 5-7' autumn blaze maple arrived nicely packaged and was still in good health when it arrived. However, it was tiny. It was barely 4' tall, and had only 6 leaves. Even if genetically superior to the trees sold at big box stores I could never justify paying this much for a tree this size again. I found one at a local store that was 12' tall and cost less than half of this tree. It took over month to receive my tree (which I expected), so I was anxious to get it planted and decided not to return it.

We purchased our Autumn blaze in December 2012. We received it in great bare root condition with no foliage. It looked like a 3-4 foot stick with roots. It stayed that way til the end of March of this year. It started getting little buds on it. It is now April, 4 mos after planting and it has a bundle full of beautiful leaves and growing! Very happy with this little tree. I would love to be able to post before and after photos.

By: Joe
So far the tree is growing very nicely. Just what we ordered. Thank you.

We bought and planted one of your Autumn Blaze trees less than a year ago. The very bottom of the tree is sprouting new leaves, but the top has not produced new buds or leaves. Can you tell me how to correct this ? I would assume since the very bottom by the ground has leaves, that the tree is still alive ? Please advise. Thank you. C Witt.
Christine W on Jun 1, 2014
Best Answer: Remarkably I have seen this effect in many bushes as well some small trees. It appears that the plants are struggling with either lack of moisture and/or clear sunlight.. so the "top level" branches remain in suspension. The good news though is that some trees will grown upward from the "working branches" that have leaves. It is VERY important not to TOP the tree by removing the inactive upper branches. It looks odd for a while but the tree will correct any imbalance over the next growing years. Good Luck!

does the root system grow on top of ground?
A shopper on May 30, 2014
Best Answer: No mine is below ground. You may be refering to seeing trees that sometime have large roots that appear on top. I think that depends on how they are planted. I love my tree 1 of the best choices I have made. My tree is doing great. This tree will be loved for generations to come. You cant go wrong buying this tree.

Best Answer: Hello! I found every 5 days with a real root-soaking (not yard sprinkler misting) does the trick!~ The tree roots in the ground are equal to the width of the tree canopy (branches length) so stick in that zone, but leave the few feet around the trunk dry. Even in the gray of murky New England I have seen this tree prosper! All the Best.

I purchased an Autumn Blaze last summer and it has survived the winter and grown about 6-8 ft. and full of leaves At this time, it seems to be doing just fine growing as expected.

I planted two autumn blaze maples in late April. One is growing nicely (large green leaves and branches developing for several weeks now). The other is not doing as well - it still has green leaves (but much smaller) and some branch growth, but nothing like the other one. Any suggestions?
A shopper on Jun 22, 2014
Best Answer: If it's only been in the ground a couple months, it's probably too early to decide. I planted mine last spring and it only went from 3ft to 5ft by the fall. I made sure to properly water and fertilize, and I used elemental sulfur amendment (my soil is very clay rich and damp and the Maple's love slightly acidic soil, so I made an adjustment for it). Anyway.. it grew pretty slow the first year. This summer is completely different as it went from 5ft to over 15ft (and still tipped by new growth) in just this spring... I'm assuming it took some time for the roots to get set, which may be whats happening to your trees. Have some more patience, and good luck (and I hope you gave them enough room for large trees - which may happen sooner than you can imagine).

how long to leave the tree guard on?
A shopper on Jun 18, 2014
Best Answer: We bought ours at about 2 feet tall, and being so small it just had a bamboo stick to keep it straight. Now in it's 3rd summer, it has grown to 6 feet tall and it definitely needs a strap to keep it steady. We live in Oklahoma city where it can get very windy. And it just helps it grow straight. It has grown most of the 4 feet this summer alone, and still growing.
