Planting & Care
Planting Instructions: Choose a spot in your yard that has full sun exposure. If planting several trees together, be sure to leave at least 15' between each tree to give the tree room to grow. The Autumn Blaze will not thrive in shallow soils, so be sure to choose a place that gives your tree the depth it needs to grow. When planting your tree, find the root flare zone. This is the spot where the very top root of the rootball meets the trunk of the tree. Do not place any soil amendments like compost or fertilizer in your soil. Simply dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as long. Place your tree in the hole, making sure the root flare zone is right above the surface of the ground. Do not compact the soil; keep it loose. Make sure there are no competing weeds around the tree and then add a 3" layer of mulch around the tree, extending 6ft. out from the trunk. Keep a 10" area around the tree trunk free from mulch.
Watering: For zones 4-6, you will need to water your tree once a week for the first year of its life. For zones 6-9, you will need to water your Autumn Blaze tree twice a week for 6 months. When watering, lightly add 1-2 gallons over the rootball for every 1 inch of diameter of the tree. In other words, if your tree trunk is 3 inches in diameter, you will water with 3-6 gallons. During the first 5-7 years of your tree's life, water once every 3 weeks in warm weather and once every 6 weeks in cold weather. After this, the tree will survive on natural rainfall.
Maintenance: There is very little maintenance with the Autumn Blaze. If the branches of the other Autumn Blaze trees you have planted begin to rub against each other, prune those branches. There is no other pruning required with this tree.
