It is a October Glory Maple Tree, when you receive it, it is just a 3 foot stick with the roots, I dug a hole 14 inches deep and 14 inches wide, carefully open up the roots. Mix half and half of regular dirt and potting soil. Before I filled the hole I put 3 plant food sticks. Water twice a day for the first 2 weeks. This tree will grow faster than you think. Lol

Answers

Hello and thank you for your interest! October Glory Maple trees are known to grow best in USDA Cold Hardiness Zones 4 - 9, meaning they will withstand temperatures below -20° F. If the average low for your area is above this, then the October Glory Maple should grow quite well there. I hope this helps you, thanks again for the question!

Bought this tree along with 6 Aspens from Home Depot. Soaked them 3 hours as directed and planted in superb top soil with the straw around the roots as directions inicated. Watered daily. Never came up and finally wrote to Online Orchards asking how long I should wait. They never answered. Just pulled the sticks out of the ground today 9 weeks after planting. Pictures attached. Total waste of effort. At least Home Depot said they'd refund my money. I never write reviews like this but thought people should know this product is a total waste - buy real trees from a nursery.

My bare roots October Glory maple tree is doing very well! This was the most developed dormant tree that I purchased; with decent root growth before planting. Enclosed new picture from this morning. ONLY drawback was it did not have a species tag at arrival, but by process of deduction, (I purchased 3 different maples at the same time), I figured it out. I am pleased!

I bought this online. My tree was not even 36", and looks like it had the top lopped off. It has maybe a half dozen leaves on it. I hope it fills back out and grows beautifully, because it's quite ugly right now. About 18 months ago I bought two trees in store for the same price, and they were about 7' tall. Not buying online again.

We bought 4 trees. Three weeks later they arrived. We planted immediately per instructions. Two of the four did not live past tree weeks. We contacted the company and got replacements. They threw in 1 extra for our trouble. Two of those replacements died within a few weeks even with consistent watering and following planting instructions. We are now left with 3 of 4 ordered trees that are still living. Hoping they will survive long term. We will not purchase bare root trees again and would not recommend Online Orchards. Picture shows the best out of 4 that is still living, so order at your own risk.

This "tree" came in a cardboard box. Weird, but I open it to find a stick with some leaves growing on it in 2 places. Ok, well, it has potential. I get it out of the cardboard and take the burlap off of the bottom and find the plastic pot that's holding the ROOT. One lone root. Anyway, I soak it, dig the hole, and plant it. It hasn't grown much and definitely isn't impressive. But I think it's gonna live!
