Trees arrived in good shape some wilted leaves. Planted 2 days later and weather turned cold freezing then warmed up. Leaves turned and have dropped off. Will have to wait until spring to see if they come back strong. Until then hard to rate.
Remarkably fast growth
I planted a 14 foot tall Celebration Maple exactly two years ago and it is now over 26 feet tall! Beautiful habitus with amazing growth with new leaves appearing even now in early September. If you wish to have a high canopy with space to walk around under the tree be sure to prune lower branches in the spring so that the nutrients and energy flow preferentially to the upper branches.
Compared to product received from other online providers the packaging with minimal. The top of the tree of cut off so it would fit in the box and the amount of root soil was minimal. The trunk of the tree at ground level was twisted and 3 inches higher it looked like a major branch had previously but extracted. The tree however seems to be doing well at this time because of my care and watering. We'll see after the winter and check on the growth in the spring.
Beautiful leaf color.
So far so good. This tree grows considerably fast. After three months of being planted it has sizeable growth. The clots a bright orange red. It is beautiful. Can't wait for this to put on some height!
Planting & Care
Location: When fully grown the Celebration Maple tree is broad with a low-growing canopy spread of at least 20 feet, so plant the tree 15 feet or more away from buildings or structures. The tree grows 45 feet in height, so avoid planting the tree under powerlines. Plant the Celebration Maple tree in USDA plant hardiness zones 4-8. It can withstand wind, ice, snow, storm damage and thrive in areas of urban smog pollution.
Planting Instructions: The Celebration Maple tree grows best when planted in full sunlight. When it receives at least 8 hours of sunlight per day, its autumn colors are exceptional.
The tree is highly tolerant of soil conditions and grows well in any soil pH. Ideally, the tree does best in a soil pH range of 7 to 8.5. It can even tolerate standing water for short periods of time.
Dig a hole that is twice the size of the tree’s root system. Place the tree into the hole and gently spread out the roots. Mix ample organic matter into the soil and tamp it down around the tree’s roots to remove all air pockets.
Place a two to three-inch layer of mulch beneath the tree (but not touching it) to prevent weed growth and help keep the tree’s root system moist.
Watering: For the first year after planting the Celebration Maple tree, keep the roots moist but not overly wet. Once a week watering is usually sufficient. After the tree has established itself, only water during periods of drought.
Fertilizer: Fertilize the Celebration Maple tree in the spring. During the tree’s first few years of growth, use a general purpose fertilizer that has a slightly higher phosphorus ratio to encourage the tree’s roots to grow. Read the instructions on the fertilizer and apply it at the recommended ratio.
Staking: The young Celebration Maple tree only requires staking in areas of excessive wind. If the tree stands shorter than 12 feet then a singular, low stake is all that is required. A tree that stands 12 feet or more will require two stakes.
Pests and Disease: The Celebration Maple tree is virtually pest and disease free once established.
