Maple Tree Care

Maple tree care begins when considering where to plant the tree. Most maple trees prefer a site that is generally in full sun to partial shade. Different varieties of maple tree care for different soil conditions. Some enjoy soil that is moist and well drained, while others can be tolerant of flooding or drought. The fertilizer that should be used will also depend on the type of maple tree in question.

Maple tree care will continue as the tree begins to grow. A stake may be required in areas that are windy until the roots have a chance to establish themselves. Maple tree care also entails proper pruning of the tree. Different maple trees grow in different ways, and many can also be trained. Some maple trees have only on main trunk, called a central leader. Others can be trained to have a central leader. This depends on the type of tree and the result that the landscaper is looking for.

Maple tree care also means ensuring that the proper growing conditions are consistent throughout the life of a tree. The conditions may change if a tree planted nearby grows faster and begins to block out the sunlight from the maple tree. In these cases, the best maple tree care may be to transplant the tree to another area of the landscape in order for direct sunlight to be provided for the tree.

More information about maple tree care can be found in a variety of locations. Maple tree care information can be obtained at a local library, where many books are written and compiled on the act of growing different trees. Information can also be found on the Internet, where newsgroups and garden centers often have very complete information. Local garden center would be able to provide tips on maple tree care that are customized to the particular climate of the region.
