Sweet Addition to Any Landscape
Why Sugar Maple Trees?
Beauty, charm and strength - the Sugar Maple is a hardwood that embodies it all. Rising to large heights, the Sugar Maple expands its grace, spreading out its incomparable leaves. It's no wonder New York and Vermont have both adopted it as their state trees and Canada has adorned its national flag with the Sugar Maple's incredible leaf.
Plus, you get a show of color like no other. In fact, its autumn foliage stands out above all others in the landscape. That's when the substantial green leaves morph to rich golds, bright yellows, then a burnt orange so vivid it almost glows. The show of color ends with an unmatched deep red that will keep you looking forward to next fall.

Customer Reviews & Photos

Delivery was good.But too early to say if the tree grows well as the tree has no leaves now and we can only tell by Spring.
Work in progress
I was excited to find that you had Sugar Maple trees available. I had been looking for some time. My tree could have been delivered in better condition. The soil around the roots was very loose and the cardboard cover used for shipping slipped and the roots were exposed. Upon planting the root ball fell apart and I had to plant more like an exposed root tree than an established potted tree. The 3 peach trees I purchased at the same time were great and very easy to plant. As always the success is in the final result and I will have to see ovet the next year or two how the tree does.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! If you have any issues with your tree this spring, please let us know and we'll be happy to help you under our dormancy guarantee!
Two Sugar Maples
I purchased two trees. They arrived two days later than expected due to a problem with shipping label. The shipping box arrived in perfect shape. I planted both trees within one hour of arrival. One tree was in very good shape. The root ball was still moist. The root ball of the second tree was dry any falling apart. So far (11 days) both trees are doing well, but it is hard to know for sure this time of year. I have bought multiple trees from Pam’s Fast a Growing Trees in the past and have never been disappointed.
We're glad to hear that despite the issue with the delay, the trees are doing well! Please let us know if there are any issues come Spring with them leafing back out and we'll be happy to help!
Trees arrived on time and healthy. I planted them the next day....and supported them on 3 sides...excellent soil...watered well. Next Spring will be the indicator of their true health.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Tolerant of soggy soils, Sugar Maples grow nicely in any fertile soil but prefer well-draining soil. And once established, it tolerates droughts with little harm although infrequent, deep irrigation will help retain more foliage in extremely dry periods, especially in regions with hot summers.
Select a spot where the tree is in full to partial sun exposure (4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day), and dig a hole for the Maple that’s 2 to 3 times the width of your tree’s root ball and equal depth. Place your tree in the planting hole, keeping the top of the root ball even with the ground. Fill a small amount of the soil into the hole to maintain the tree’s upright position and water thoroughly. Once the water has absorbed into the root ball and surrounding soil, fill the remaining soil into the planting hole. Pack firmly and water a second time.
Finally, mulch to retain soil moisture and keep competing growth away from the planting site.
2. Watering: During its formative years, your Maple will require weekly watering, and as it matures, your tree will still need plenty of water during the summer months. Be sure to water correctly - light green leaves are a sign of over-watering, while drooping leaves signify both over-watering and under-watering.
3. Fertilizing: During the first growing season, use only slow-release fertilizer tablets on your new maple. Any 10-10-10 fertilizer will be suitable. Fertilize your maple twice a month when it is coming out of dormancy and once a month during the summer. Discontinue before the tree returns to its dormant state.
4. Pruning: Prune when the leaves have fully matured. At this time, there will be less sap. Remove all dead or dying branches. Do this before you start cutting live branches; it will give you a better idea of what your tree looks like and how many of the live branches you’re going to need to cut. Decide which branches you’re going to cut before you start cutting. Look for large branches growing at narrow angles to the main trunk, branches that are rubbing others or branches that are growing inwards and crossing others.
