Hardy Zone: The Sun Valley Maple Tree is hardy in USDA zones 4 to 8, making it suitable for a wide range of climates.

Planting: Choose a location with adequate space for the tree's mature size. Dig a hole that is slightly wider and the same depth as the root ball. Place the tree in the hole, ensuring the top of the root ball is level with the ground. Backfill the hole with soil, gently firming it around the roots to eliminate air pockets.
Watering: Provide regular watering during the first year after planting to establish a healthy root system. Water deeply, ensuring the soil remains evenly moist but not waterlogged. Once established, the tree is moderately drought-tolerant but will benefit from occasional deep watering during dry spells.
Fertilization: Feed the Sun Valley Maple Tree in early spring with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for application rates. Avoid applying fertilizer near the trunk to prevent burning the roots.
Pruning: Prune the tree during its dormant season, typically in late winter or early spring. Remove any dead, damaged, or crossing branches to promote good structure and airflow within the canopy.
Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the tree, extending it out to the drip line. Mulching helps conserve moisture, suppresses weeds, and regulates soil temperature.
