Maple tree slow growth

Zone Collingdale, PA. 19023 | Anonymous added on July 4, 2018 | Answered

I have a red maple I planted will be three years ago come October. It seems to be about 3 ft - maybe 4 feet taller since them. This is a real so growth isn't it ? I feed it plant/tree spikes every spring and fall, add fresh dirt and mulch each fall and spring when I feed as well. Any other ideas that might help - or do I just have a defective grower ? :) Thanks in advance for your assistance. Rita Ruhl

I would first start with a soil test. Your County Extension Office can help you with this. A soil test will take out the guess work and the nutrition needs of your tree.

Is your soil well draining? Adding organic soil amendments can help.
