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!

The Red Rocket Red Maple, also known as Acer rubrum 'Red Rocket', is a stunning tree that offers a burst of color throughout the year. This variety of Red Maple is known for its narrow, upright growth habit and its brilliant red fall color.

The Red Rocket Red Maple typically grows to a height of 30-35 feet with a spread of around 15-20 feet at maturity. This makes it an excellent choice for smaller landscapes or areas where space is limited. It prefers full sun to partial shade and is adaptable to a variety of soil conditions, but it thrives best in slightly acidic, moist, well-drained soils.

Like other maples, it's important to water this tree regularly, especially during dry periods. Pruning is best done in late summer or early fall to prevent sap bleed.

This tree is a great choice for adding vertical interest and color to your landscape. It's also resistant to many pests and diseases, making it a relatively low-maintenance choice.
