Selling Laceleaf Japanese Maples

Q: I want to sell two beautiful, well-established laceleaf Japanese maples. We are moving but cannot take them with us. Do you know of any place to contact

A: According to Japanese maple expert Norm Mittleider, there is a very small market for buying existing trees, no matter how beautiful. Your best bet would be to send an inquiry to several of the larger landscape companies listed at to determine their interest. Be prepared to send detailed pictures of the trees if requested. Unless a company is doing a custom design requiring very mature maples they will probably not be interested in incurring the moving expenses involved.
