Best Answer

A balanced organic or specialty fertilizer are what is best for Japanese maple trees (Acer palmatum).

Specifically, Japanese maple trees benefit from either a balanced, slow-release organic fertilizer or from a fertilizer that is designed especially for their leaf color and shape needs. Either one can work. Otherwise, Japanese maple trees may not need fertilizer applications if they are growing in grass, ground cover, lawn or turf that benefits from regular fertilizer treatments.
