Autumn Blaze Maple trees boast both beautiful fall foliage and a shapely form, making them the ideal pick for landscaping large areas. The Autumn Blaze Maple tree is a hybrid of the Red Maple Tree and the Silver Maple Tree, both native to North America. Their branch pattern is dense and ascending, and they sport a rounded or oval crown. Maturity comes quickly for the Autumn Blaze Maple tree — they can grow as fast as three feet per year under the right conditions. Come fall, their leaves turn to a brilliant orange-red. Like many large landscape trees, Autumn Blaze Maple trees need little care. Primarily, you must keep the soil around their roots moist while they are still young. Likewise, they only need pruning every three to five years in late spring or early summer. Fertilizing is also not really a necessity if you plant them in soil that is already moderately fertile. Autumn Blaze Maple trees can function in your landscape as fast-growing shade trees and as specimens highly valued for their colorful fall foliage. They're also pollution-tolerant, an important factor if you will be growing them along a street in a busy neighborhood. As with other trees deemed suitable for urban areas, they can adapt to a wide range of soil conditions.
