Water: Keep well watered while young to establish a strong root system. Red maples like a moist soil. Mulch helps with moisture retention especially in the hot dry season, and will help with the soil drying out completely if watered regularly.

Pruning: Prune in late winter or early spring if required. Regular pruning keeps these trees in shape and can prevent major limb breakage.
