Q.Can I Save This Maple Tree I Tried To Rescue
My neighbor across the street was expanding his driveway and the contractor ripped this poor Maple tree out not leaving much of a root ball. That was in August of last year. I rescued it an planted it in my yard. I have watered it and put it in Miracle grow soil, as that was what I had on hand that day to get it in the ground. I have been hopeful by the appearance of a few leaves at the top bottom of the tree but am wondering if I should do more.

I would give it the scratch test to see if it is still alive. If it is, a little pruning and some fertilizer may help. Is this a Japanese maple?
