Customer Reviews & Photos
- Fast Growing Trees
We have been talking about planting a tree in our plain backyard for a few years but never got around to it. Ordering from FastGrowingTrees.com was simple and it arrived a few days later in great shape. Three weeks later it looks healthy. We only wish we bought it sooner.
The employees are US based and very friendly. I just got the tree and will have to update later. It is a beautiful tree. I love it and hope it makes it. Some of the leaves are dying but I hope it will be ok. I planted it as soon as I got it and have been trying to take good care of it. It is just a beautiful silver maple tree. The employees are very nice. Thank you.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: The Silver 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 Silver Maples with some spacing from power lines, structures, sidewalks and sewer lines.
2. Watering: This tree can tolerate wet or dry conditions. 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.
