How Big Do Japanese Maple Trees Grow?
Available in a variety of shapes, including vase-like silhouettes with multiple trunks such as the Bloodgood Japanese Maple and weeping shapes like the Viridis Japanese Maple, the Japanese Maple Tree is versatile but generally grows in a manageable size. The specific mature height and width will depend on the variety you choose, but you'll get blazing hues from all types.
Planting Japanese Maple Trees
Planting could not be easier. First, ensure you've selected the right Japanese Maple for your growing zone. Then, ensure you plant in an area with the right amount of sun, whether that's full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight) to partial sun (4 to 6 hours of sunlight).
When you're ready to plant, dig a hole large enough to accommodate your tree's root ball (with a bit of extra room to grow), place your tree, backfill the soil and water to settle the roots. Finally, mulch the area to conserve moisture.
How to Prune Japanese Maple Trees
Wait to prune your Japanese Maple Trees until the dormant winter season. For healthy growth, you can remove sick, dead or broken branches, suckers, and any competing branches. Remember to cut at a 45-degree angle with sterilized shears.
