Maple trees are fairly hardy. However, they do need some attention to keep them looking their best. To care for maple trees, you should:
1. Mulch around the base of your trees to help them retain moisture during hot, dry weather.
2. Water your trees during drought conditions, especially if you have sugar maple or Japanese maple varieties.
3. Prune any branches that are growing toward the center of the tree to help air circulate freely.
