Princeton Gold (Acer platanoides 'Princeton Gold') is an ideal Norway Maple for the smaller garden, as its height at a mere 8m (26ft 8in), somewhat shorter than many of our other maples, makes this possible. Its leaves make this tree a real feature in the garden because of their stunning golden coloured leaves. Of importance is the fact that this tree is resistant to intense sun and its leaves do not scorch. A brilliantly strikingly beautiful golden leaved form of the Norway Maple.
Princeton Gold is supplied at a height of 150 and 240cm in a 10-15L container, which means that the 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.
The large range of sizes we offer depend on the previous weather we have had for the preceding two years.
If you require many maple trees then click WHOLESALE MAPLE TREES where you can find trees from £0.81 pence per tree when buying 100. 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.
Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it unless the plant is very hardy.
Mature Tree Warranty
Once a tree is over 3 years old, the failure rate is considerably less and our Tree Warranty does not cover it at 100%. Please check details.
