Autumn Blaze Maple TreeGreen Acres carries high quality deciduous and evergreen trees, available in potted or balled and burlap (B&B). Container trees are grown in pot in pot fields that utilize a low pressure spray stake watering system. Growing this way keeps the root ball cool and moist, creating a healthier tree. Container sizes range from 5 to 45 gallon. Balled and burlap from 1” to 4” in caliper. We even produce Autumn Blaze Maples from cuttings!
