I have a Sun Valley maple in my back yard, and I also have a generic red maple that was an Arbor Day Foundation freebie. I stuck the freebie in a spot just to tide it over until I could give it away. That was 3 years ago, lol. It actually has a beautiful form and I'd like to keep it. Due to the shape of my back yard - the only place I could put it - I would have to plant it no more than 25 to 30 feet from the Sun Valley. Is that workable spacing? Thanks!
Give me land, lots of land, under starry skies above. Don't fence me in.

You are welcome, Cindy (with the avatar that reminds me of our beloved passed Smilax hispida VValley...).

Cindy:
Yes, that definitely is, but it would be best to space them around 15 feet away from each other, that way they will look fluffy and organized (at least to me).
I know you said you can't do that, but just saying that if you can, you should probably space them 15 feet away from each other, for best results. Smiling
Love is patient and love is kind. Always be loving and kind to one another.

Oh, I could plant them that close - I meant the maximum distance away from each other that I could get would be 25 feet. Closer would be no problem. Thanks!
