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.

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.
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.
UK Grown Ornamental TreesClimate Change
All our trees are banned from overseas travel so that we can state they are all UK grown. We have removed Internet access from the nursery so they cannot book any flights.
Warm and wet conditions from Climate Change have increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy.
