I HAVE A BIG PROBLEM. IN THE SUMMER THE SUN BEATS DOWN ON OUR LIVINGROOM WINDOW. IT STARTS AROUND FIVE THIRTY IN THE EVENING WHEN THE SUN IS FULL FORCE IN OUR FRONT YARD AND IT DOESNT MATTER WHAT WE HAVE ON THE WINDOW, OR HOW FAST OUR FAN IS GOING AND HOW LOW THE AIR GOES. ITS AN ENERGY SAPPER AND I HATE THAT THE MOST. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE FAST GROWING SHADE TREES THAT I CAN PUT IN MY FRONT YARD. I DONT REALLY LIKE THE LOOKS OF RIVER BIRCH TREES AS THOSE ARE THE ONLY ONES THAT FIT MY CRITERIA SO FAR. DO YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR A FAST GROWING SHADE TREE THAT WOULD RECIEVE LATE AFTERNOON SUN, FROM ABOUT 230 ON. THANKS TONI
Where is the best place to purchase an Autumn Blaze Maple Tree and a Sugar Maple tree I prefer to find the largest size I can transport and plant myself.

Hello,I am looking for this tree in my area Essex County NJ but apparently none of the local nurseries sells them. I also tried bigger nurseries out of state but they either wont deliver because its too far or are wholesale companies and dont sale retail.Do you have any suggestionsThank you for any help you can provide.Simon
Simon,Keep trying your local independent Garden centers. This is a common Native tree that every good nursery should have for sale.Thanks,Steve
