Fairview Norway Maple Trees

Loading...

One of the more upright forms of Norway Maple, Acer platanoides 'Fairview' is a solid choice for urban areas and avenue planting. In spring, small yellow flowers contrast against colourful red new foliage. The large, lobed leaves transition to dark-green and finally bronze in autumn.

Acer platanoides 'Fairview' is tolerant of most soil conditions, along with drought and pollution. With an oval habit, it will grow to a height and spread of 8 x 5 metres in 20 years but more in maturity. It is a relatively new variety that is closely related to 'Crimson King'.

Planting Advice for Acer platanoides Fairview Trees

Our pot grown Fairview Norway Maple trees can be planted at any time of year. Prepare the planting area by removing all weeds and grass within a metre of your desired planting hole. Dig a square hole as deep as the root mass and approximately twice as wide. To help the tree establish effectively, especially if the soil is poor, sprinkle rootgrow in the hole.

Remove the pot, gently loosen the roots and place the root mass in the planting hole so that the surface is flush with the surrounding ground. Using 50% of the original soil and 50% compost, fill in the hole and firm around gently

Use a stake and tie kit to anchor the roots - instructions are in the online planting guide. Finish by watering generously around the base.

Aftercare for Acer platanoides Fairview Trees

Norway Maples require a good watering regime for the first couple of years. Water well and regularly throughout spring and summer, increasing in periods of hot or dry weather. If planting in autumn, you may only need to water a little. Rain water is more acidic than tap water and better for foliage colour.

Keep the area free of competing weeds for the first few growing seasons. Note that only shade loving plants will grow beneath Norway maple trees - decorative bark is an alternative. If your area is prone to rabbits, use a rabbit guard.

Pruning Advice for Acer platanoidesFairview Trees

Pruning should be carried out in the dormant season, from November to March. Norway Maple trees bleed during other times of the year so pruning can weaken the tree. However, Norway Maple trees very rarely need pruning. The natural shape is normally the most attractive and pruning should be carried out with a less is more approach. Only remove, crossing, damaged or diseased branches.
