Planting a Sugar Maple seed.
Hello! I've got a beautiful Sugar Maple in my yard, and I've decided that I'd love to have another. Right now the tree has tons of seeds dangling from it, and I'd like to plant one if possible.
First, do I just pluck a seed, break it in half and bury it and cross my fingers?
Second, how far apart should it be? Would 15' be far enough? I am told Maples have shallow root lines but cover a lot of area, would their roots "fight"?
If anyone has a step by step explanation of what I should do that would be fantastic. The seeds have not come off the tree yet and are currently all green instead of dry brown looking after they fall.
