Redpointe Maple Pros

The Redpointe® Maple is tolerant of acidic soils and produces spectacular fall colors earlier than other maples. A large number of maples are cultivated in places with high soil pH, which might promote chlorosis in leaves, especially during the summer months. It has been developed to be more resistant to yellowing and chlorosis, as well as anthracnose, spider mites, and leafhoppers, which are all common in North American environments.

This tree's adaptability to a wide range of local climates and soil types is one of its most notable characteristics. It is adamant about presenting the earliest, brightest, and finest quality color possible, which enhances the aesthetics of any landscape.

Redpointe Maple Pros and Cons

Beautiful pyramidal maple with a spontaneous growth habit that is narrower than others, making it a great shade tree for smaller landscapes. Highly versatile, pest-free, and leaf chlorosis-resistant.

Redpointe Maple Cons

Problems with the root system may reveal themselves in the form of cracked sidewalks or driveways adjacent to the planted tree. 

Roots growing beneath the soil's surface may cause harm to lawnmowers and may also suffocate the grass or other plants growing beneath the tree.
