need help! planting 10 autumn blaze maples

ohiotreeguyOctober 28, 2013

We have a unwelcomed neighbor building a home next to ours. We live on 3 acres and have about a 150 property line that we want to plant the trees on. We want to have privacy in the spring/summer and nice fall colors. We are unsure how far apart to plant them? I will thinking 15-20 feet apart but I want the trees to develop nicely, but we also want privacy.

I planted these Autumn Blaze maples 20' apart, about 10 years ago. They were 1 1/2" bare root.

Those are beautiful! I planted a twig of a Autumn Blaze Maple in my front yard two summers ago . It was 7' from Wal Mart, had one lateral branch about 1/2 inch and was bent at a 45 degree angle . Branched out quite a bit last summer. Looking forward to this summer. It is nearly straight!
