THE TREE-LINED-NEIGHBORHOOD TREE
You know those idyllic neighborhoods in the movies, with the beautiful tree-lined streets? Chances are maples make an appearance, especially if the movie features kids trick-or-treating, or someone falling in love in autumn. Autumn Blaze is one of our favorite ‘street trees,’ perfect in a series down your street or just the length of your yard.
Blaze’s foliage is rich green, deeply lobed and is most beautiful when it’s turning shades of brilliant orange-red in fall. The branching is dense and the tree has a shapely rounded to oval crown. Plus, they grow fast–up to three feet a year under the right conditions and up to 40 feet high and 30 wide.
Give yours a dose of Iron Plus in fall to keep it strong and lush.
