Spring and Autumn are the best seasons for planting trees, as the soil moisture and heat allow easier and faster root establishment and regeneration of damaged root systems. Although Japanese Maple trees do require some sunlight, they are best planted in a sheltered condition to avoid waterlogged soil.
Care and Maintenance
Japanese Maples reach their unique shape when left to grow naturally, so little pruning is required. If you are going to prune your tree, do so in the winter time as sap is produced, which can weaken the tree. Remove any dead branches and keep it well watered.
