What is the best fertilizer for maple trees?
Compost or leaf litter are the best fertilizers for maple trees (Acer spp). Specifically, maple trees appreciate ground cover that approximates their native habitat. Compost can be applied as a fertilizer, or more thickly, as a mulch from at least 6 inches (15 centimeters) from the trunk out to the drip line. Leaf litter also duplicates maple tree ground cover. Otherwise, maple trees have no need of fertilization schedules if they grow out of grass that receives regular fertilizer applications.
