Positive out come to freeze

The late April freeze killed only one of my 15 Acer palms.
Acer p. 'Sango kaku.' A 10 year old and well established tree. As far as I am concerned this tree will not be missed. A out of control misfit that belonged in the dumpster.
A new replacement was in order: Acer p. 'Shaina.'
Sorry all you Kaku lovers.

Nice specimen. Was that from Family Tree?

Dave, nice 'Shaina'! Glad to hear the rest of your maples are doing well. Dan

I had a similar experience with the horrible spring weather. I have about 50 acers (some palmatums, shirsawanums and some sieboldianums) I lost only two trees and they were very small ones. I did have alot of limb loss on about a third of the others. One of the trees that now looks like a bonsai is my Shaina! Good luck. CharRube
