Stopping Maple_Seed PodsYou can prevent seed formation by preventing pollinated flowers from developing. Cover nearby vegetation with plastic tarps to protect them from growth regulator hormone overspray. You should also never spray growth regulator hormone on a windy day.

How close to the house can you plant an autumn blaze maple? If possible, space the trees between 40 and 50 feet apart for the best root and canopy spacing. In addition, the maples' stability in thesoil may also be compromised with improper spacing -- they need strong and deep roots to remain upright during gusty days.

Do maples have deep roots? Some maple tree root systems are deep, while others are just below the surface. The silver maple tree root system is one of the most intrusive of all the maple tree root systems. The silver maple tree root system is large and has very strong roots. They will easily grow up and raise cement sidewalks and porches.

How can you tell if a maple tree is male or female? The flowers are generally either male or female and what you are seeing are bundles of stamens, sometimes red and sometimes yellowish-green, tipped with yellow pollen (the male flowers); or reddish-clusters of pistils (the female flowers) forming clumps of bristly little balls along the branches.

What do you do with maple seeds? Roast maple tree seeds and eat them as a snack or toss onto a salad or as a garnish on soup. You can roast them by placing the seeds on a baking sheet and sprinkle with spices you like. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 8 to 10 minutes. Try drying out the-seeds for something totally different.
