Growing and Maintenance Tips:


Karpick maple grows best in full sun and an acidic soil that is medium to wet, with good drainage. The smaller and denser, lateral limbs on a strong, central leader, and fine-toothed leaves are the most notable differences than those of the species. A specimen tree for a lawn, street or park, where a narrow form is needed.
