About Our Size Groups


Because maples vary greatly in their rate of growth as well as mature size we speak of their age as well as a size range. The dwarf maples are less than 6’ at maturity and some extreme dwarf trees may never exceed 3’. These trees will always be in the smaller end of the size range. Alternately the most vigorous of the trees in the Palmate group may grow 3’ the first year. These size ranges exclude the smallest and the largest trees to provide an average for the majority. We have tried to indicate the rate of growth in the descriptions as well as height at 10 years to help you know what to expect. These are averages. Our goal in production is to produce beautiful, healthy trees that are true to form with a pot full of roots.

Sizes are indicated by height x width x caliper(diameter of trunk at base)
