This is a super fast growing maple that has wonderful colours in Autumn and is great for coppicing. Japanese Maples are beautiful deciduous trees which often give beautiful autumn colour and are also great mineral accumulators.

Forest Gardens are orchards designed in such a way so the needs of the heavy bearing heavy feeding fruit trees are taken care of in the design.

We do this by:

  • Ensuring no more than 60% of the canopy space is taken up by heavy feeders. We prefer 40%.
  • For every square metre of heavy feeder canopy there is 0.8 of a square metre of nitrogen fixer.
  • For every square metre of heavy feeder there is 1 comfrey plant.
  • You have all seven (7) layers of the forest garden present.
  • You have as wide a range of mineral accumulators present.
