How To Plant Urban Sunset Maple
Your Urban Sunset Maple will be the happiest in a sunny location - the more sun your tree is exposed to, the better the fall color! This maple, like most others, prefers a well draining soil while offering adaptability to other types. Remember to water accordingly when first planted to ensure root structure and a healthier growth habit!
How To Water
When watering your Urban Sunset Maple, it's best to keep the soil moist when first planted. Achieve this by watering deeply twice a week until established. Thereafter, watch your local weather during those hotter, dry spells and water accordingly.
How To Fertilize
When planning to fertilize your tree, it would be best to do so in early spring before the push of new growth. Here at Bower and Branch, we offer our Elements Starter Plant Food to meet all your fertilizer needs!
How To Prune
The Urban Sunset Maple offers a dense and narrow growth habit, requiring minimal pruning as it ages. Lucky for you, our growers maintain these trees at a young age with corrective pruning so you don't have to! However, if you do notice any damaged or broken branches, they may be removed to maintain the tree's health and aesthetic. Any other pruning you may want to do should be done in late winter or early spring as to not interfere with new growth.

How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
