Why Plant Japanese Maple Trees?

Japanese maple trees are also considered low maintenance. That factor combined with their growing habits and rounded shape make them ideal for framing your home or accenting your garden’s borders. Japanese maple trees are also slow growing, which makes watching them rewarding as your landscape evolves.
How to Choose the Right Variety of Japanese Maple Trees
Gardening success begins with choosing the right variety for your landscape. For Japanese maple trees, it’s essential to consider your growing zone, as well as the tree’s mature height and width in comparison to your space.
With Japanese maple trees, there are a few additional factors you want to think about. These ornamental trees are sensitive to heat and strong winds, though they can grow in full sunlight. You’ll find these features are consistent across varieties, so make sure you have the appropriate space beforehand.
How to Care for Japanese Maple Trees
To start your Japanese maples care, dig a hole that’s twice the width of each tree’s root system. For depth, you don’t want to go past the soil line, which you’ll see when your tree arrives in its pot. Mulching is a must because of the heat sensitivity of Japanese maple trees — mulch helps by locking in moisture.
Your ornamental trees will love fertilizer. Fertilize when the ground is frozen, and use a fertilizer with low nitrogen levels. During the first year, you can use a liquid fertilizer. For pruning, Japanese maple trees need their lower limbs and dead wood trimmed. We also recommend cutting branches intruding on layers above or below them and then thinning the remaining branches.
