Brilliant Fall Foliage and Vivid Color

Municipalities love the Autumn Blaze Red Maple Tree. Why? Well, for starters, it features eye-catching, reliable red fall color that's second to none. And thanks to its fast growth, with gains of 3 to 5 feet per year or more, that dazzling fall show is a just a click away.

What else makes the Autumn Blaze a must-have? It boasts insect and disease resistance in a uniform silhouette - with minimal mess after its leaves drop in the fall. The Autumn Blaze is truly one-of-a-kind.

Plus, the richly-hued Autumn Blaze is the winner of these coveted landscaping awards:

- 2004 Urban Tree of the Year
- 2003 Urban Tree of the Year
- 1997 Tree of the Year by the Iowa Nursery and Landscape Association

It's no wonder why the Autumn Blaze Red Maple is one of the most popular new tree introductions in history. Best of all, you can plant it and forget it. Because of its hassle-free maintenance, it thrives without much fuss. And these trees aren't bothered by car exhaust, so they're perfect for planting along neighborhood streets.

Did we mention strength? Autumn Blaze Maples resist ice damage and high winds. Even better, they adapt to a large range of soil conditions and climates.

A hybrid of two famous trees, the red and silver maples, the Autumn Blaze Red Maple captures the two trees' quality characteristics: brilliant red color, dense branching and a rapid growth rate.

We give the Autumn Blaze our highest recommendation. And landscapers have put this tree in short supply, so we recommend you order while supplies are available. Own an Autumn Blaze Red Maple Tree of your own!


Autumn is a great time to plant maple trees. As cooler weather approaches, they will drop their leaves, and focus completely on root growth. This allows them to get an excellent head start on growth for next year.

After a long hot and humid summer here, our leaves may show signs of stress. This is simply cosmetic and will not affect the overall health of the trees. New growth in spring will be fresh and new.

If you do not see a full show of color your first year, do not be alarmed. Maple trees can take 1-2 years to acclimate to your climate and get the deepest color possible.

Two years old yesterday
This purchase arrived nicely packaged and was planted right away on a warm October day two years ago. It stands in front of my house slightly to the east of south, in anticipation of providing shade sometime in my life. It has doubled in height since planting, and is branching out as it goes. It isn't really showing a dominant strong central leader, but appears to be developing into a nicely rounded, bushy canopy.

A Tree That Will Always Bring A Smile To The Memory
Purchased this tree on September 30, 2018 to be a Memory Tree for a dear daughter and sister killed in an automobile accident on Sunday, September 2, 2018. I got in contact with FGT twice before my order and both times I received kindness, prompt answers to my questions and the promise that the tree would be delivered in great condition and in short time. The family for whom the tree was purchased received in not only in great condition, but superb condition, within forty eight hours of my placing the order, and the tree's height size and beautiful color was just what this family needed as they heal. Received a picture of the whole family and the tree which was planted on the first anniversary Sunday of their daughter and sisters accident, and I was absolutely blown away with the height and health of the tree! IT IS BEAUTIFUL!! This family lives in Zone 6 and so are looking forward to watching the tree grow and show off its colors in the coming seasons as they heal and remember their loved one. THANK YOU AGAIN, FGT for making the gift worth the effort and cost (which was just perfect for this old Lady's budget). Would love to attach a photo of the family planting the tree but I want to respect their privacy and time of grief. But, I won't hesitate to recommend you!

I think this is going to be my favorite
I planted this tree in April, which can be a risky time at 8.700' in the Colorado Rockies. It is now Oct 1st. I think this is going to be my favorite tree. I have it on a drip system so it got watered every morning and it has thrived.
I am very pleased with this beautiful addition to our yard.
I have a 6' hog wire cage around it. stayed protected with umbrella on top during hail storms.
This is week two of fall color at 8,700' in the Colorado Rockies. I am in love
I mean look at it!

Too Early...
I ordered the Red Maple Tree and it arrived quickly and in very good condition. All care instructions were placed with it and I planted the tree a few days after it arrived. I’ve had the tree now for about 3 weeks and it seems to be doing well, but it is a very young tree and I didn’t rate it 5 stars because it’s just too early to really know much. I’ll update in a year.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Autumn Blaze Red Maple Tree


Autumn Blaze Red Maple Tree Planting Diretions

The Autumn Blaze Maple tree is a popular shade and ornamental tree that provides the adaptability of the Silver Maple with the beauty and strength of the Red Maple. In the fall the Autumn Blaze Maple has a vivid display of bright red color that is the best of any tree in north Texas. The Autumn Blaze Maple also has winter interest because the new branch growth retains a red color after the leaves drop.  Autumn Blaze maple trees are deciduous trees. At maturity, Autumn Blaze maples will reach about 50 feet tall by 40 feet wide. Their fast-growing nature is one of their best qualities.

 

With back-to-back “Urban Tree of the Year” awards in 2003 and 2004, the Autumn Blaze Maple has proven to be a popular choice of tree. As with other trees deemed suitable for urban areas, they can adapt to a wide range of soil conditions and are insect-resistant, pollution-resistant and disease-resistant. Due to their vigorous rates of growth, they often the decided choice over Maple Reds as they take the shape of their tree much quicker and offer almost immediate scenery.

 

Seasonal Information: Autumn Blaze Maples do exceptionally well in fall when their foliage is most vibrant but will provide shade and splendor all year round.

 

Selecting a location: Allow lots of room for your Autumn Blaze Maple to grow. These are fast growing and very large, up to 40-60 feet tall when they mature, so leave lots of room.

 

Planting Instructions:
1) Dig a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root ball.
2) Place the Autumn Blaze Maple inside, holding it straight and cover with soil. Tamp down as you fill to avoid any air pockets from forming.
3) Water the planting site and cover with mulch to conserve soil moisture.

 

Watering: Rainwater should be enough but in times of drought, or heat you may want to add a little extra watering to your usual routine. Try to mimic it’s natural habitat and overcome your urge to water too much.

 

Fertilization: Autumn Blaze Maples typically do best when nitrogen levels are high; therefore, look for fertilizer bags that have high first numbers, such as 16-4-8 or 12-4-8 formula combinations.

 

Pests and Disease: Most of the pests are common garden pests and can be controlled accordingly. Monitor your Autumn Blaze Maples tree trunk for sign of disease. Any growths, or discoloration may be cause for concern but most diseases are easily treatable.

 

Pruning: Thin out young plants to 3-4 main branches. After blooming in spring, clip the tips of the branches. Make the cut just above the point where a pair of leaves attaches to the stem. Sterilize your cutting tools with rubbing alcohol to ensure a clean cut.

 

Pollination: The flowers of the Autumn Blaze Maple contain both male and female parts instead of separate female and male parts of individual trees. Autumn Blaze Maples are deciduous trees, and propagate by seeds, which have wings. The seeds fall, spinning toward the ground like a helicopter.

Are they actual trees or twigs with roots?
Jason L on Aug 11, 2018

How many feet does it grow in a year?
Kelly B on Apr 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My Autumn Blaze tree grew almost 3 feet in the 1st year. I do have mulch around the tree and put 1 gallon of water on it from sprinkling can to keep the mulch saturated. I also sprinkle Miracle Grow on it about every 2 to 4 weeks during the summer months of Chicago. The tree really started getting thicker and sprouting more branches by last summer's end. I have to admit that I was a little skeptical when I read how fast the trees grow, but I figured I would give it a try. I am very pleased with the results.

James Gibellin
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).
do the roots grow above ground?
debbie m on Apr 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No; this maple tree is a hardy maple with the root system below ground. I have a soft silver maple in my front yard I would love to replace because the roots are above ground. Unfortunately it is my primary shade for the front of my house so I will replace it when I really have to.
Just recieved my autumn blaze!! So excited but it's sept 1 St and very hot here in Mississippi !! Should I keep my baby in my 71degree home or go ahead and put this baby in the ground ? Thank you! Please Help!!
Sherry on Sep 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is tough time of the year to plant new trees, here in the south. I assume this plant is in a container. Any radical change in environment will be tough on the tree. The tree has probably been raised outside at nursery. I would suggest placing container in a partially shaded area outdoors and making sure it has adequate water. You should be able to plant the tree in a couple of weeks in full sun after the weather has cooled off some. Be sure and mulch around tree and keep watered if you do not get rain. In the future order plants to be delivered between October and Feb. Then you can plant right away with no problem. Hope this helps.
Can this be planted near other trees?
Denise O on Apr 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, we planted ours near oaks, pines and Japanese maples. The autumn blaze trees are absolutely beautiful trees and grow very quickly. When you receive the bare root trees they look pretty sparse but believe you me, they grow the next year fabulously. ??????

BEST ANSWER: I planted my autumn blaze maple in November 2012. When I received my tree it was about 5' it is now double the size. I love this tree and can't wait to see the leave turn red.
are they a strong tree?
Larry A on Jul 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Mine are relatively young but if this past winter didn't kill them (though the dear had fun nipping at the leaves) nothing will. Today they are still growing.
is this tree strong?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: These tree's are very slow growing and do not tolerate the desert heat. I have full sunlight which they are suppose to require. They are not very drought tolerant as they claim and only will go a couple of days before they are wilting down. I do not have much good to say for them at this point.
