Tree under stress?
I liked the shape of the tree when it arrived. It's been planted as directed. For the first couple weeks the edges of the leaves started to dry out. I was not overly concerned as I thought it had a little stress from transplanting. It was planted using potting soil that was supposed to feed it for 6-9 months so I did not use any fertilizer. It's had water but now the edges of most all the leaves are drying out. Don't want to over water it but don't want to under water as well. Any suggestions?

Needs Some Shade
Tree arrived in great condition but was struggling immediately. We are in new construction with not a lot of mature trees. Local landscapers working in the area advised that this tree does better with more shade. It is currently in a large pot on our porch and is doing better. We are hopeful we will be able to plant it on the property at a later date.

Nice, but small
Here is the Red Japanese Maple I received. It was a little smaller than I expected, but seems to be doing well. I can't tell if it has grown. I should have marked the stick that came attached to the tree. It has developed a couple of new, very small leaves. It is mostly in the shade during the day, getting about 3 hours of sun each day.
Small, but green.

It doesn't look like this little twig is going to make it. We appreciated the replacement tree, but it is so small, and the leaves are already starting to turn brown and fall off.

So far so good. New growth quickly. We'll see how it does. Did not receive the root starter that was to come with the order so planted it without.

I love Japanese Maples! If I had to do it over I would’ve purchased the $175 red Japanese maple at Home Depot that was 4’ wide and 4’ high and was so lush you couldn’t see through it. Instead, I paid $99 for a 5’ stick with 3 branches that had serious rub damage and leaves with significant pest damage. As stated in previous reviews I’ve written, all 3 trees I’ve purchased from this company has had pest damage and it’s due to the mild SC winter we had which is fine - but I don’t think they should charge as much for those trees.

I’ve managed to get this maple to produce new growth but it’s been a battle. I also bought several bushes from fast growing trees and they were all perfect and have significant growth in the month 8ve had them.
The branch was ripped at the seam but it has new growth so....
It’s been a battle but she’s producing new growth.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Red Japanese Maple

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

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

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.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Red Japanese 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 Red Japanese Maple again after the transplant is complete.

Do the roots of Japanese maple grow straight down or out from the trunk?
James J on May 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: What I love about this tree is that trunk do not get big the roots grow straight down it grows the max 15 ft. And you can make it as a bonsai if you want.
How soon should my tree be planted once it is shipped to my home?
