Trees that are sized by height or caliper are delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap. They require heavy equipment to install. We recommend working with a contractor for installation! They can also provide the equipment necessary for offloading the tree upon delivery. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor has equipment ready upon your trees arrival! OR check the box below for ServeScape to provide offloading equipment for an additional fee.

Waterfall Japanese Maple is a small cascading deciduous tree with weeping branches that nearly touch the ground.  It displays deep, almost lace-like, finely cut soft green leaves that become gold in fall.  Small, non-showy but attractive umbels of purple flowers bloom in spring followed by samaras.  Grows best in rich, moist, slightly acidic well-drained soils.  Prefers full sun in cooler climates, but needs afternoon shade in southern areas.
