Planting & Care

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

Silver Maple Tree Planting Diretions



The Silver Maple can be planted in any soil condition, though it naturally grows in soggy bottomlands. It can tolerate full sun or partial shade. Plant in a hole twice as wide, though just as deep as the root ball. Mulch around the canopy, but not near the trunk, will help the tree maintain moisture. Plant away from power lines, structures, sidewalks and sewer lines.


Watering: This tree can tolerate wet or dry conditions. Be sure to water the tree weekly in its young life to ensure proper growth. If you live in an area with frequent droughts, you may need to water weekly throughout its life.


Pruning: If you live in an area with windy conditions, hurricanes, ice storms, or salty air, you'll need to prune your tree in the early spring to prevent limb breakage. Prune the weakest branches including any dead or diseased branches.
