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!
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.
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!!

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.

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...

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We have the tree in our backyard. The colors are gorgeous. It grows quickly. The leaves are already gone though ,fall in Upstate NY,.
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.
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.
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.

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.

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.
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!

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.

i bought last fall and its growing very well.havent got to enjoy the full beauty yet but has lots of new growth n looking forward to see what shade of red it will be this fall.
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.
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.

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

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.

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.
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.

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.
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 : )

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.

Wow - These trees grow fast! About 3 feet high a year. Great product and company.
By: Kelly Curiel
This tree is doing very well.
Our tree is in its third autumn. It is strong, healthy, and growing well, but it has never given us the beautiful color change that we expected.

I was very pleased with your very impressive boxing-up. It's clear that you care about them arriving safely. Thumbs-up on your great delivery of a beautiful Autumn Blaze Maple tree! 10-12-12
So far the tree is growing very nicely. Just what we ordered. Thank you.

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.
