*Heights are given as a very rough guideline and can have considerable variation based on species and supplier (each nursery experiences different growing conditions) It may even have been pruned before being sent out so we can only guarantee girth. Trees over 5.5m may include a delivery surcharge based on location and species (we will contact you about this if so).
Once a mature Acer Negundo Flamingo is around 200cm/4 years old then girth is the best measure of value for money. For every girth measurement increment e.g. 6-8cm to 8-10cm, the canopy will be wider, stronger, bushier and the root system larger as it has experienced 12-18 months growth. You can notice larger root systems with potted versions because the pot size increases with maturity. As a very general rule, each one cm girth measurement represents around 30cm growth but this doesn't apply to slow-growing trees.
Rootball means it will not come in a pot but will have the roots wrapped which you need to remove before planting and are available for delivery only between November and March. If listed in a pot, they are available to purchase and plant all year round.
Standard and Half Standard means lollipop shape. Industry definitions (which are not universal) mean Half Standard have around 80-150cm clear stem and Standard 180cm or more. Half Standards will usually be quite smaller than their standard equivalent girth size.
Feathered means it has an obvious single stem with side branching for most of it.
Mature Acer Negundo Flamingo
The Ash-Leaved Maple tree (Acer negundo 'Flamingo') is rather interesting in that it carries striking variegated coloured leaves, that is they are a pale green colour with salmon-pink edges, which change to white as spring changes to summer. Groups of yellowy-green flowers in spring are a feature of interest with this tree. This tree is fast-growing, with a broadly spreading form and with a final height of 12m (40ft) is ideal for a medium sized garden. We recommend this tree is planted in a partially shady spot as its delicate leaves are sensitive to hot, intense sun.
Ash-leaved maple is supplied at a height of between 1.5 and 2.0 metres in a 7-12L container, which means that this tree has an already established root system and therefore this tree can be planted any time of the year and with better results than either bare-root or rootballed trees.
If you require many maple trees then click WHOLESALE MAPLE TREES. These are 40cm to 60cm tall.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.
Early Autumn Leaf Fall
Heat stress, being potted, lack of water, being boxed up for a few days etc can cause early Autumn leaf fall. Once planted, normal service will resume next season.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
Climate Change has increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust, frost damage etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season or less. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy and will bounce back.
