And Now, Our 4 Tips to the Perfect Maple Tree

  1. Location
    Depending on your choice of maple, you want to make sure you take the location into consideration. About Maple Trees tells us that some maples roots like to grow near the surface while other types of maples roots will compete with any plants for the nutrients and water that available in the soil.
  2. Zones
    Maple trees are great because they can grow almost anywhere. You can grow maple trees if you live in Zones 3-9. If you don’t know what zone you live in or why it’s important, we have an article for you at: How to Understand Gardening Zones.
  3. Spring
    Typically, planting trees in the fall is the perfect time of year. However, for the maple tree, you should plant in the spring.
