Planning to install this yourself? We recommend a size 15 Gallon or smaller for DIY installations. These sizes do not require any offloading equipment.
Any tree or shrub that is sized by HEIGHT or CAL (Caliper- size where the trunk meets the root flare) is delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap (B&B). They are typically 1000+ LBS per plant. They will require heavy equipment to install. Installation is not included in the price of the plant. We highly recommend adding the ServeScape ‘One-Click’ Installation service (must be added at the cart page) for material of this size, or working with a contractor that can provide equipment for installation.

For any tree or shrub that is sized larger than 10’ HEIGHT or 3” CAL, the customer will be required to provide offloading equipment or a contractor to offload unless paying for installation through ServeScape. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor can have equipment ready upon your plant's arrival!
**Dormancy Note - This plant is currently dormant for the winter! It is available for purchase! Your delivered plant may be dormant, or showing very little top growth. However, you can still plant! These plants are putting all their energy into root production, so they will be ready to thrive in the spring! If you have any issues with your plant the following peak season, you can fill out our return request form to request a replacement plant.

The Armstrong Red Maple features a columnar or fastigiate shape, meaning it grows in a narrow and upright form. This makes it an excellent choice for landscapes with limited space or for creating vertical interest. The leaves are green during the spring and summer months, but in the fall, they turn a vibrant shade of red, adding a burst of color to the landscape.

This deciduous tree thrives in full sun to partial shade and prefers moist, well-draining soil. It is relatively low-maintenance and can tolerate a range of soil conditions, including clay and sandy soils. Regular watering is important, especially during dry periods, to keep the soil consistently moist.
