Brilliant, Easy-to-Grow Fall Color

Why Autumn Blaze® Red Maple Trees?

Imagine eye-catching, reliable red fall color that's second to none - with our Autumn Blaze® Red Maple, you'll get amazing hues and more. And thanks to its fast growth, with gains of 3 to 5 feet per year or more, that dazzling fall show is just a click away.

What else makes the Autumn Blaze® a must-have? It boasts insect and disease resistance in a uniform silhouette - with minimal mess after its leaves drop in the fall. The Autumn Blaze® is truly one-of-a-kind.

It's no wonder why the Autumn Blaze® Red Maple is one of the most popular new tree introductions in history. Best of all, you can plant it and forget it. Because of its hassle-free maintenance, it thrives without much fuss. And these trees aren't bothered by car exhaust, so they're perfect for planting along neighborhood streets. Even better, they adapt to a large range of soil conditions and climates.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

A hybrid of two famous trees, the red and silver maples, the Autumn Blaze® Red Maple captures the two trees' quality characteristics: Brilliant color, dense branching, and an amazing growth rate. You get these amazing characteristics because we've planted and grown your Autumn Blaze® for the best possible benefits. You'll reap the rewards of our hard work at the nursery with the Autumn Blaze® in your landscape.

We give the Autumn Blaze® our highest recommendation. And landscapers have put this tree in short supply, so we recommend you order while supplies are available. Own an Autumn Blaze® Red Maple Tree of your own!

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.

Questions & Answers

Why Autumn Blaze Red Maple Trees?

Imagine eye-catching, reliable red fall color that's second to none, giving you the best yard on the block. With our Autumn Blaze Red Maple, you'll get amazing color without lifting a finger. Thanks to its fast growth, with gains of 3 to 5 feet per year or more, that dazzling fall show is just a click away.

It's no wonder why the Autumn Blaze Red Maple is one of the most popular new tree introductions in history. Especially since you can plant it and forget it. It’s resistant to common pests and diseases, so it thrives without much fuss. 

And these trees aren't bothered by car exhaust, so they're perfect for planting along neighborhood streets. Plus, they adapt to a large range of soil types (even sand!) and climates, from humid temperatures in southern states to -30-degree freezes up north.

Who is Fast Growing Trees?

We are the largest mail-order nursery in the country, shipping bigger and better trees directly to your door.

Some nurseries dig their Maple Trees out of the ground and send them bare-rooted, or 'ball and burlap.' This can leave up to 90% of the roots behind, while the tree loses up to a year of growth.

But when you order from Fast Growing Trees, you are getting well-rooted, better-branched Autumn Blaze Maples ready for explosive growth. 

Spacing Your Autumn Blaze Maple

You can plant your Autumn Blaze Maples every 10 to 20 feet, depending on how tight you’d like to cluster your trees. They reach maturity anywhere from 10 to 15 years after planting and can reach heights of 40 to 50 feet, with a mature width of about 30 feet.

What Size is Best for Me?

Autumn Blaze Maples reach a mature height of about 40 to 50 feet after approximately 15 to 20 years. If you’d like a more immediate impact now, we recommend ordering our larger sizes. 

Planting the Autumn Blaze Maple

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.

When is the Best Time to Plant Autumn Blaze Maples?

You can plant any time throughout the year, as long as the ground isn’t frozen. We do recommend planting during the fall, however. Plant yours at least one month before the ground freezes in your region.

When Do I Water My Autumn Blaze Maple?

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.

How I Fertilize My Autumn Blaze Maple?

Autumn Blaze Maples typically do best when nitrogen levels are high; therefore, look for fertilizer that has a high first number, such as 16-4-8 or 12-4-8 formula combinations. Follow label instructions and fertilize in the spring.

How Do I Prune My Autumn Blaze Maple?

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.
