Japanese MapleWhat to Expect the First Year:
As with all newly-planted trees, these need to be watered carefully through the first Spring/Summer see our Tree Establishment section for more details.

Each year they are growing in our fields these trees leaf-out beautifully; but the first year after digging/planting they are putting their efforts into establishing their roots. This causes them to have smaller leaves than they usually would. By the second year they should be back to normal.

These trees are works of art, with beautiful shapes.
