Do you have any tips for planting maple trees?

Planting Maple Trees

Maple trees come in a wide range of sizes, from tiny Japanese maples to massive Norway maples. However, they all have the same basic planting requirements. To plant maple trees, you should:

1. Always place the tree in a spot that is far from house foundations, septic systems and wells. Maple trees have invasive root systems.

2. Choose a location that has partial to full sun.

3. Be sure soil will remain moist in dryer months, but don't choose locations with waterlogged soil.
