Customer Reviews & Photos
Ordered 4 trees. They came on time. There were some stems/ branches broken in the box and plants had come out from the pots as if the box was rattled. 3 of the plans are looking good after a couple of days of water and fresh air. They are already in the ground. The maple tree doesn't look healthy. It has very little leaves and most of them are either eaten or have dried dark spots on them. Except for this 1 plant I am satisfied with the other plants. Hopfully this will survive.
I was very pleased with my Maple, it was bigger than I thought it was going to be and is looking great.
I did have one tree arrive that was broke off upon delivery! I sent an email and they honored the issue and sent a new one right away!
Trees arrived in great shape and were generous with the height of tree. Rootballs made for easy planting.
The tree arrived on time in good shape. It was well packaged. The box incurred no damage during shipping. Planted it right away. So far so good.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: The Cardinal Maple can be planted in any soil condition, though it naturally grows in soggy bottomlands. It can tolerate full sun or partial shade (but prefers 4 to 8 hours of sunlight daily). Plant in a hole twice as wide, though just as deep as the root ball. Mulch around the canopy, but not near the trunk, to help the tree maintain moisture. Plant your Maples with some spacing from power lines, structures, sidewalks and sewer lines.
2. Watering: Be sure to water the tree weekly in its young life to ensure proper growth. If you live in an area with frequent droughts, you may need to water weekly throughout its life.
3. Pruning: If you live in an area with windy conditions, hurricanes, ice storms, or salty air, you'll need to prune your tree in the early spring to prevent limb breakage. Prune the weakest branches, including any dead or diseased branches.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
