priming for outdoor placement

Post  Chuck-815 on Mon May 28, 2012 5:07 pm

I purchased a Japanese Maple that until now (chicago area) has lived this year in a greenhouse with frosted glass. What are the recomendations to acclimate this tree to full sun outside. The reason it was still in the grenhouse is they had so many trees they had not made room for all of them after spring had sprung. I dont want my new tree to get sunburn or wind burn so any advise would be great .... Thanks

I would just start it in some shade/part shade for a few weeks and then move it gradually into more light from there over the following weeks. I don't know that particular tree well but most of my maples prefer some limitation to full sun, mine get only a few hours a day. Hope this helps, good luck.

Many of the Japanese Maples are understory trees and don't want full sun. I would start the tree with heavy shade and gradually give it a little less shade. I don't think I would ever give it full sun for any period of time.
