This afternoon we loaded up three 36" box trees onto a trailer bound for Lake Tahoe, CA.
Two were Acer palmatum Beni Kawa. These coral bark trees have a slightly smaller stature than 'Sango Kaku' and, we believe, a healthier branching structure. They also tend to hold the red color in the bark throughout the year. At nearly ten feet tall, these two maples will make an instant impact in their new home. They're even starting to show fall color.
The other tree was an Acer palmatum Fireglow. This particular plant was as wide as tall and showing great red tones. It will definitely cast an impressive shadow in its new backyard.
