The Q&A Archives: Red Maple

Question: What do I need to do to my 1 year old Red Maple for the winter. I live in the Texas Panhandle. Also, Can I plant a Cottenwood naxt to it? It's time to trasplant.

Answer: Marsha,

Red maples are rated as hardy throughout the panhandle region of Texas. I would not plant another tree near the red maple as that would cause them to grow in competition and thus not form a nice shape but rather shade each other out and end up growing lopsided. Give at least 40 feet between those two trees.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
