Autumn Blaze Maple

Autumn Blaze Maple | Acer x freemanii

Sienna Glenn and Autumn Blaze Maples are basically cousins in a group of trees from the hybrid ‘freemanii’ series which is a cross between silver maple and red maple. The silver maple brings the riparian characteristics to this tree with the larger zone of rapid taper in the root plate or flare area and a more rapid growth than traditional red maples. The red maple brings the fall color and better branch structure. Yes better branch structure once the tree transitions into mature growth as the juvenile branch structure must be removed and managed with aggressive training pruning during the first decade after planting.
