Autumn Blaze Maple is a deciduous tree that is a hybrid of the Red Maple and the Silver Maple
The tree is mainly used to add beauty to the homestead yard or office garden due to its colorful appearance. The Autumn Blaze Maple can grow as high as 50 feet and occupy a breadth of about 40 feet. The tree matures rapidly at a rate of three feet per annul provided that the optimum conditions for its growth are given. This rapid growth rate makes it an ideal tree for providing shade in homesteads and office yards. It also forms a canopy making it a perfect tree for sheltering from harsh weather conditions such as intense sunlight. This brilliant red colored tree does best in moist and well-drained soils. When the soil’s PH is acidic, they thrive best. One of the reasons why anyone should not hesitate to plant the Autumn Blaze Maple is because it requires very little care after planting. However, when the plant is at a young stage, it is essential to keep the area around the roots moist.
Autumn Blaze Maple doesn't need anymore watering after the flowering season
The plant also needs minimal pruning. You can, however, trim its leaves in the late spring when it becomes so bushy. Another paramount reason why the Autumn Blaze Maple is a perfect landscape tree is that it doesn’t necessarily require the input of fertilizer during planting. However, some people prefer to give the plant a growth head start by applying nitrogen-rich fertilizer during the early spring season. Additionally, the trees are also tolerant to pollution. This means that they can efficiently do well in urban environments.

Also, there exist very few pests and diseases that attack the Autumn Blaze Maple. After planting all that one requires is to do regular trimming and watering when necessary. This is, therefore, one of the ideal trees for planting around the homestead.
