Sad Maple Tree

Posted on May 31, 2011 at 6:07pm 0 Comments

I have a red Japanese Maple Tree that is in full sun and a windy part of the garden. I don't know where to move it to get it to be happy and grow. It was here when i moved in 7 years ago and it was 2 feet tall. It's still 2 feet tall. Please help me if you know what I can do for it. Thanks so much,

yes, that could be quite possible.  You may want to have a Certified Arborist take a look at it.

Hi Geneivere,

Also transplanting an older tree that might be struggling could be too much of a shock for it

Hello Genevieve, there are a number of varieties of Japanese Maple, and many of them are designed to be very small. So it could just be a cultivar (cultivated variety) that is designed that way.  You might check with your county's OSU Extension office and see if a Master Gardener can help you.
