Maple Trees

Maple trees are highly prized for its striking fall foliage.

Maple trees have vibrant hues of fiery red, electric orange, and calming yellow. This tree is sure to bring envy to all who do not own one. Known best for its tasty syrups, building furniture and much more. This Maple Tree is the perfect option for a guaranteed show stopper during the fall.

Where to Plant

You should plant your Maple tree in an area that gets full to partial sun. It is very important that your tree is not exposed to extreme heat, or sunlight, because it will stunt the leave’s membrane growth. Meaning, those leaves will not turn red during the fall. It is suggested to plant in an area that gets 3 to 6 hours of sun daily, preferably in the morning or early afternoon when the sun isn’t too harsh.

Planting Maple Trees

Dig a planting hole for your maple that is three to four times the width of your tree’s root ball and equal depth. Remove your maple from its container and ensure root moisture. Place your tree in the planting hole, keeping the top of the root ball even with the ground. Spread the roots out evenly and surround them with dirt to avoid air pockets, which can dry out the roots of your tree. Fill a small amount of the soil into the hole to maintain the tree’s upright position, and water thoroughly. Once the water has absorbed into the root ball and surrounding soil, fill the remaining soil into the planting hole. Pack firmly and water a second time.

Pruning Importance

Pruning your Maple tree is very important. Because this tree grows so tall, dead branches can be a safety hazard to all. If you do not prune your tree, dead or damaged branches could fall on power lines, people, and homes as well. Make sure to prune your tree during the winter, when the tree is dormant, because it will promote new growth.

Different Color Ranges

It is commonly mistaken that the foliage of all maple trees turns red. However, that is not case. Some have more of an orange or yellow color, like the Celebration Maple and the October Glory. If you’re looking for bright red foliage, try our Autumn Blaze Red Maple.

Why don’t the leaves turn red?

Many are not aware of this, but there are a few factors that come into play when it comes to your foliage turning red. For instance:

  • If the weather is too warm, especially at night time, the membrane will not grow. Which, in return, will not help get those leaves turn red. If it is not planted in a sunny location, the red fall foliage won’t form.
  • If the tree is 3 years old or younger it is very common in maples for them not to turn colors right away.
  • We have experienced “La Nina" for the last couple of years which accounts for most of the young maples not turning red. La Nina is high moisture seasons and too much rain at the wrong time. Maples need dry weather and no fertilization to have the sugar rise which causes the red color.
  • Too much fertilization. These maples do not need fertilizer right away. If the maple is getting over fertilized it can cause the leaf color not to change. The proper time to fertilize is only in the spring.
  • Poor soil conditions- sandy soil,clay based soil, poor draining soil, and nutrient deficient soil can cause your leaves not to turn color. Getting soil tested can help in determining why the red color is not producing.

Autumn Blaze vs. October Glory

There is this continuous argument between which is better. The Autumn Blaze or October Glory? Well, that argument really depends on what you are looking for. The Autumn Blaze Maple Tree can tolerate colder temperatures than the October Glory, and is also crossed with the Silver Maple tree. The Silver Maple does come with a few disease issues which may come with the Autumn Blaze. If you’re looking for a tree that doesn’t require as much maintenance the October Glory would be a great option. However, if your soul wants a Maple tree that has bright electric red leaves, then the Autumn blaze maybe worth the hassle.
