    New Autumn Blaze Maple Questions (Pictures)

    I'm a newbie and have a couple of questions. Please have patience with me.

    1. I just planted a 15G container grown Autumn Blaze Maple in my front yard. The trunk is @ 1.25 in diameter at the base. I didn't notice the problems shown in the picture below when I bought the tree. How serious is the problem below on my trunk? It appears to be just minor surface scraping, but I'm not sure. Is it OK?

    2. The tree is slightly bowed as many container trees seem to be. My question is, will the bend correct itself (it is in full sun all day long) or should I take corrective measures. I have seen that product called the Tree Trainer which apparently is better and more succesful than staking.

    3. I live in St. Louis. When should I expect the buds to start blooming (they appear to be just starting) and when will the leaves begin to appear.

    Thanks for your help.

    RE: New Autumn Blaze Maple Questions (Pictures)

    Maple trees have very thin bark when they are this young, so you may want to wrap the tree trunk with some white paper next fall to prevent sunscald. This paper can be purchased as most nursery centers. Also, you might want to put a cage or fence around the tree base to keep critters and weed eaters, etc. away from these wounds until they heal. The tree should leaf out in a few weeks.
