Planting and care
Winter is a carefree season for Japanese Maple grown within their hardiness range and mulched in late fall.
The only concern is heavy snow loads, which might cause some branches to snap.
After a particularly heavy snowfall, brush away any large accumulation of snow, being careful not to treat the branches too roughly.
Ice, on the other hand, should be left in place. It freezes onto the branches and is best left alone.
Spring is the most vulnerable time for your Japanese Maple. As discussed above, the tree will leaf out early — often spectacularly! — and then suffer in late frosts. Keep it covered whenever frost threatens. As soon as the weather settles down, begin a regular watering and feeding schedule.
Wind tree care
Autumn is the best time to plant a Japanese Maple. Ideally, you should plant at least a month before the ground freezes, so it has time for some root growth before winter. But if you find yourself planting late, don t worry. Your tree will wait patiently until spring to begin settling into its new home!
Unless your weather turns exceptionally dry, reduce the amount of water you give the tree in autumn. This will stimulate better color changes. And as autumn comes to a close, be sure your Japanese Maple has a nice thick layer of mulch, and pluck off any dead leaves still clinging to its branches.
