Anxious for spring! Will send pictures as they grow.
The shipping was fast and the packaging was great.
I received my tree quickly after they sent me an email saying it was shipped. I was surprised that it came bent in a box. I planted it the day I got it and it straightened out nicely. Its roots were wrapped in a bag with a water containing gel. I wasn’t sure that I was supposed to plant it with or without the gel and could not find any care instructions in the box. I water it daily and it seems to be thriving.
How long does it takes to mature and How big does it get.
The tree arrived well and I was able to plant it right away.
This is a great selection of maple trees.
great bunch of trees

Most Maples love water and sometimes need extra during drought conditions.
Many ones can be shaped during growth.
The Maple often grows up to 120 feet tall. It can become a canopy that is 50 feet wide.
Maples Provide Shade
One of the first things people notice about a mature Maple is the shade it provides in hot weather. This deep shade can noticeably lower the temperature within the immediate area. Because many Maples grow large branches, their tone can be expansive as well. This helps to keep cooling costs for a property lower. It also provides a beautiful spot for a table and chairs for summertime dining.
They can also Provide Shelter
When they are planted together, they form a protective barrier around a house or other building. They serve as a windbreak, and they provide a privacy barrier. They also add a sense of stately permanence to a property.
Maples also provide shelter to many kinds of wildlife. While this includes birds and squirrels, many other types of wildlife will shelter in or near a maple tree.
Maples Are Beautiful
Maples provide a magnificent beauty that will last for many years. Some varieties grow slowly and fill in their space without much notice. Others proliferate and can provide shade and shelter in a shorter time. Whether they are red, silver, or another kind, these trees offer an elegant and long-lived beauty. They can raise the value of a property, protect houses from weathering, and add enjoyment for everyone who sees them.
The red maple tree, also known as swamp, water, soft, and scarlet maple, is the most abundant native tree in eastern and central North America, and it is planted throughout the nation in USDA zones 3-9.
It is best known for its brilliant, scarlet red autumn foliage. Its distinctive leaves are triangular-shaped and 2-6 inches wide with serrated margins and sharp-angled clefts between the lobes. The leaves emerge green with a reddish tint in the spring but mature to a shiny, medium to deep green with silvery undersides.
Female trees bear decorative red fruits called samaras from April through June. These winged fruits spin in the wind, giving rise to names such as whirlybirds or helicopters.
Also in spring, the trees bear clusters of small, smoky red flowers, but Showtime is early fall when the leaves morph into intense color palettes of golden yellow or orange; but they most often turn orange to scarlet before dropping. Soil acidity influences color, as does the sex of the tree. Female trees are more likely to produce yellow to orange leaves, and males will more likely be red. Red maples herald the change of season by being among the first trees to change color in the fall.
Although preferring moist, acidic soils in full sun, this tree thrives in various habitats. It grows in the shade to the full sun at low and high elevations and in wet to dry soils and typically grows 1-2 feet per year. It owes its versatility to its adaptable roots, which will spread laterally or develop a deep taproot, depending on growing conditions.
Impact on Landscape
Red maple trees achieve a height of 90-120 feet with a rounded crown, the span of 25-40 feet, and a trunk diameter up to 30 inches. It earns its popularity in landscapes with its shade, form, and dramatic color—and its amiability with its environment, whatever it might be.
Sugar Maple - Acer saccharum
This tall, beautiful member of the Sapindaceae (soapberry) family is famous for its showy fall foliage, high-quality lumber, and sugary sap. The sap is drawn out with taps from the trunk, then boiled for syrup and sugar products. Captain John Smith of the Jamestown colony documented how Native Americans tapped trees and made sugar in the 17th century.
They grow in USDA hardiness zones 3-8, reaching nearly 100 feet tall and 65 feet across. They prefer neutral to slightly alkaline soil with a pH range from 6.8 to 7.5 but will tolerate slight acidity. Full sunlight is preferable, but Sugar Maples thrive with some shade as long as they receive four hours of daily daylight.
The soil needs to be sincere and moist but not damp. Although they have moderate drought resistance, they are native to the eastern U.S and will likely need supplemental irrigation in the northern Great Plains and intermountain west. Automated, part-time drip irrigation works well.
The wood is highly desirable for beautiful furniture and cabinetry. The primary uses of the maple outside of commercial agricultural are for shade, specimen and accent trees. These are appropriate uses for its broad spread, oval shape, and stunning fall foliage.
The five-inch, five-lobed leaves are distinctively scalloped on the edges, appearing on the Canadian national flag. It grows one to two feet per year. Flowers appear in April and May. They are green, small and hang in groups from delicate stems. Some trees are monoecious, with flowers of both sexes while others are either male or female. The tree should never be tapped once buds appear.
In autumn, Maple leaves famously change color, from green through yellow, orange and red. At this time, winged seeds begin falling from the canopy.
Sufficient room is imperative for Maple's roots and branches. Never restrict this tree.
