Questions on Red Sunset Red Maple

  • From Bill Schrieffer at 7/13/14 4:01 PM
    • How tall is this tree at the time of installation? I am looking to purchase a tree that is about 7 or 8 feet tall at the time of planting so that it can immediately provide some shade and block the view of a busy street about 100 feet away. Also, how long will I have to wait for the tree to be delivered? Please advise.
    • Here are the approximate heights for Maple trees by caliper size: 2 inch caliper = 10-12 ft tall, 2.5 inch caliper = 12-14 ft tall, 3 inch caliper = 14-16 ft tall, 3.5 inch caliper = 16-18 ft tall, 4 inch caliper = 18+ ft tall. The smallest we would typically carry is 2 inch caliper - which would be closer to 10-12 ft tall. During the tree planting season (May-November) typical wait times can range from 2-6 weeks depending on the time of year and availability- it changes all the time, so please call or email us for a more accurate estimate. I realize that you sent this email some time ago, I apologize we were having some problems with our product question feature which have recently been corrected. If you have further questions please feel free to reach out to us via email at info@itrees.com or give us a call at 815-448-2138.

    • Hello. We are going to order a Red Sunset Red Maple tree from your company soon. We live in Naperville, IL where the average first frost is between 10/1 and 10/10. I have read that it is best to plant this tree at least 6 weeks from the first frost, which would be 8/20. Does this information apply to this tree? If we are unable to get the tree planted in time this fall, is it ok to plant in the spring? If so, when in the spring is ideal? Thanks very much, my Wife and I look forward to obtaining one of these beautiful trees.

    • All of our trees are balled and burlapped- which means we dig the tree, much of its root system, and surrounding soil and then wrap it in burlap and put it in a metal basket- at that time it is ready to be transported and transplanted. All trees can be dug out of the field in the spring, before they leaf out and, in addition, some trees can also be dug in the fall after their leaves have dropped. Red Sunset Red Maple prefers to be spring dug- so we dig them out of the ground in March or April depending on the weather. From there, they can sit balled and burlapped out of the ground all year, as long as they are on drip irrigation (which ours are!). They can be planted at any time during the year, including at any time during the fall, as long as they are dug out of the ground in the spring (which ours are!). In some cases, we are able to fall dig Red Sunset Red Maples as well, and we have had success doing so- but we only do this with the express permission of the customer as it is a bit more risky. That is a long way of saying- yes, they can be planted in the fall up to around Thanksgiving as long as they are initially dug out of the ground in the spring. They can also be planted in the spring and summer as well! We typically start planting trees in May (depending on weather) and we plant trees all year long up until early December (depending on weather).

    • How tall are these trees when shipped, warranting a $400.00 price?
    • What Do These Sizes Mean?

      Balled and bur lapped trees are measured by their caliper. The caliper of a tree is measured by the thickness of the trunk, so a 2" caliper tree means that the trunk is 2 inches across. The height ranges depending on the tree. Typically, a 2" shade tree is going to be much taller than a 2" ornamental tree, because their height now is relative to their mature height. Here are some examples using approximate heights:

      Maple Trees (shade tree):
      2" caliper = approx. 12-14ft tall
      2.5" caliper = approx. 14-16ft tall
      3" caliper = approx. 16-18ft tall
      3.5" caliper = 18-20+ ft tall

      Crabapple Trees (ornamental tree):
      2" - 2.5" caliper = approx. 8-10ft tall
      2.5" - 3" caliper = approx. 10-12ft tall

      A clump tree or evergreen tree is measured by height. A clump tree, like a River Birch, is a close group of trees with multiple trunks. A 10-12' Tall Clump River Birch means that the size of the tree will range from 10 to 12 feet tall at the time of planting. With evergreen trees, we measure to the top cluster of branches, not to the very tip of the highest needles. This ensures that you are getting a tree that is truly the height you are looking for. An 8ft Tall Douglas Fir means that the tree will be 8ft Tall to the top cluster of branches. All trees are measured from the top of their root ball, meaning they height we state is the height of the tree after it is planted in the ground.
