Red Maple Live Stakes


Red Maple Live Stakes offer TN Nursery customers an exceptionally affordable way to cultivate Acer rubrum or red maple trees.


The species is an American native deciduous tree species that will flourish in almost every USDA zone.


What Are Red Maple Live Stakes?


The term live stake refers to a horticulture technique often used by professionals and home gardeners to reforest or plant larger quantities of trees.


Live staking starts when a horticultural expert harvests tree branches during a dormancy period. Then, they immediately plant the stakes they gathered in a permanent location, allowing the roots to establish. This process typically happens in the late winter or early spring; however, tree dormancy times vary based on local weather. Generally, you would plant your red maple live stakes as soon as possible after the ground defrosts in the early spring.


Where to Plant Your Red Maple Live Stakes


Red maple live stakes are relatively easy to care for. Find a full-sun or partially sunny site with at least six hours unfiltered daylight.


Your red maple live stakes need soil well-amended with organic material. Work mulch, peat moss, organic compost, or shredded leaves into the planting area. Keep mulch around the red maple live stakes.


After the roots strengthen, the red maple live stakes need about an inch of water weekly, especially during the summer. Once it grows into a seedling, the plant becomes drought-resistant and demands less care.


Your Red Maple Live Stakes Will Become an Impressively Large Tree


It might be challenging to visualize how enormous your red maple tree seedlings will become. Red maple trees can reach as high as 120 feet tall and have a 50-foot broad crown. Even the trunk can grow to a whopping six-foot diameter at maturity.


Once mature, the early days of spring will produce impressive clusters of scarlet flowers with a pleasant fragrance.


The earliest leaves will open--soft green--then deepen in hue to dark, rich green. Leaves will become three-lobed and large. In late summer, the foliage will change from green to a vibrant red tone, giving your red maple tree live stakes their name.
