Planting & Care

1. Planting: Allow lots of room for your Autumn Blaze® Maple to grow. Also, select a location with full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day) and well-drained soil. When you're ready to plant, dig a hole that's twice as wide and just as deep as the root ball. Place the Autumn Blaze® Maple inside, holding it straight, and cover with soil. Tamp down as you fill to avoid any air pockets from forming, and water the planting site and cover with mulch to conserve soil moisture.

2. Watering: Rainwater should be enough but in times of drought, or heat, you may want to add a little extra watering to your usual routine. If you're not sure when to water, simply check the soil about 2 inches down - if the soil is dry at this depth, it's time to water.

3. Fertilizing: Autumn Blaze® Maples typically do best when nitrogen levels are high; therefore, look for fertilizer bags that have high first numbers, such as 16-4-8 or 12-4-8 formula combinations.

4. Pruning: Thin out young plants to 3 to 4 main branches. After blooming in spring, clip the tips of the branches. Make the cut just above the point where a pair of leaves attaches to the stem. Sterilize your cutting tools with rubbing alcohol to ensure a clean cut.

Autumn Blaze Maples grow to be around 40-50 feet tall and 30-40 feet wide at maturity.

Beautiful tree planted it in memory of a friend right by my pond.

Ordering was easy came on the day it was supposed to. Planting instructions were helpful. Planted it that same day tree is doing great. Leaves are turning red for fall. Will order more trees from fast growing trees in the spring for sure. Sincerely Larry from Ohio.

So far so good.

It’s hard to say what I think of the tree since we’ve only had it two weeks. It was delivered promptly and packaged well. We couldn’t plant it right away, instructions telling us what to do with it would have been helpful.
