Planting and caring for Acer Cappadocicum is straightforward:

1. Planting: Choose a well-draining location with full to partial sunlight. Dig a hole slightly wider and equal in depth to the root ball. Place the tree in the hole, ensuring the root collar is level with or slightly above the soil surface. Backfill and gently firm the soil around the roots.

2. Watering: Provide regular watering during the establishment phase, keeping the soil consistently moist. Once established, Acer Cappadocicum shows moderate drought tolerance but benefits from occasional deep watering during extended dry periods.

3. Pruning: Minimal pruning is generally required. Remove any dead, damaged, or crossing branches to maintain tree structure and health. Prune during the dormant season to minimize stress.

4. Fertilizing: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring following recommended rates.

5. Mulching: Apply organic mulch around the base of the tree, leaving space around the trunk. This helps retain moisture, suppresses weeds, and regulates soil temperature.
