Sweet Addition to any Landscape

Beauty, charm and strength - the Sugar Maple is a hardwood that embodies it all. Rising to heights of nearly 100 feet, the Sugar Maple expands its grace, spreading out its incomparable leaves to widths of 50 feet across.

It's no wonder New York and Vermont have both adopted it as their state trees and Canada has adorned its national flag with the Sugar Maple's incredible leaf.

A Show of Color like no other

If there are trees in heaven they're probably Sugar Maples. Its autumn foliage stands out above all others in the landscape. That's when the substantial green leaves morph to rich golds, bright yellows, then a burnt orange so vivid it almost glows.

The show of color ends with an unmatched deep red that will keep you looking forward to next fall. With a gorgeous array of brilliant colors, Sugar Maples make an exceptional roadside tree. So beautiful are the leaves that passersby may want to pull over for a longer look.

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 are tired and may be showing some spotting and signs of stress. This is simply a cosmetic concern, and will not affect the overall health of the trees. The old leaves will fall soon, and the 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 in order to get the deepest color possible.

I bought a sugar maple from fast growing trees and it showed up as a six foot stick with some leaves and no branches. Then the leaves were all dying and when we called and complained, they said its a disease and its not their problem. I will never order a tree from here again

Planting & Care

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

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

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

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 Sugar Maple Tree 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 Sugar Maple Tree again after the transplant is complete.

BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately you are not in the recommended growing zones of 3-8
how soon do we have to plant the tree? in March we usually have snow on the ground
Irene on Oct 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Best when the frost line drops to about 18 inches in your area - need to allow the roots to grow in non-frozen soil. It's not an issue of what is above the ground- after planting, it's about what happens to the roots. If leaves freeze- they will grow back (not the concern). Dianne

Eric E on May 22, 2015
