SWEET ADDITION TO ANY LANDSCAPE

Beauty, charm and strength - the Sugar Maple is a hardwood that embodies it all. Rising to heights of nearly 100 feet, the Sugar Maple expands its grace, spreading out its incomparable leaves to widths of 50 feet across.

It's no wonder New York and Vermont have both adopted it as their state trees and Canada has adorned its national flag with the Sugar Maple's incredible leaf.

A Show of Color like no other

If there are trees in heaven they're probably Sugar Maples. Its autumn foliage stands out above all others in the landscape. That's when the substantial green leaves morph to rich golds, bright yellows, then a burnt orange so vivid it almost glows.

The show of color ends with an unmatched deep red that will keep you looking forward to next fall. With a gorgeous array of brilliant colors, Sugar Maples make an exceptional roadside tree. So beautiful are the leaves that passersby may want to pull over for a longer look.

I bought a sugar maple from fast growing trees and it showed up as a six foot stick with some leaves and no branches. Then the leaves were all dying and when we called and complained, they said its a disease and its not their problem. I will never order a tree from here again

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Sugar Maple Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Sugar Maple Tree.

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 Sugar Maple Tree 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 Sugar Maple Tree again after the transplant is complete.

Can you ship to zone 10 this Sugar Maple?
Magaven on Nov 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately you are not in the recommended growing zones of 3-8
How long does it take for it to grow nice and tall?
A shopper on Jun 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Sugar Maple Tree grows between 1 to 2 feet per year, and could take a while to get between 55 - 75 feet tall.
how soon do we have to plant the tree? in March we usually have snow on the ground
Irene on Oct 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Best when the frost line drops to about 18 inches in your area - need to allow the roots to grow in non-frozen soil. It's not an issue of what is above the ground- after planting, it's about what happens to the roots. If leaves freeze- they will grow back (not the concern). Dianne

How close to your house can you plant a sugar maple?
Eric E on May 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is going to get rather large, so if you plan on having it for many years to avoid it scraping up against the house or its root up against your foundation, I would say about 20 feet.
Is it great?
A shopper on Jun 28, 2014

What is the normal growth rate each season for the sugar maple and how many years to maturity?
frank j on Jun 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Sugar Maples are slow growers. The most you can hope for is about 1 ft of growth per year (on avg).
The three Sugar Maples I ordered earlier are doing well and starting to leaf out. One of them has shoots more densely and quickly growing on the trunk about 4 inches from the ground. Should I clip these to encourage growth toward higher on the trunk?

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.


Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!


Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
