Transplant

I transplanted a small silver maple about a month ago. The leaves have remained green but have not grown. Is there anything I can do to awaken this shocked tree? The weather in the Philadelphia area has been wet and cool but hasn't helped.
Thanks,
Typhoon

Re: Transplant

If the leaves are still green, then it is alive & it is just recovering from the move. Put some Tree Tone fertilizer around it, mulch it some & don't let it dry out in a drought. The roots need to establish & grow to support any new growth.
It takes a lot to kill a silver maple at first, but most people eventually wish they had.;)
