Customer Question

I am planning to purchase a tree for my yard. I live in Ohio. I prefer a maple as they are my favorite trees and am considering an Autumn Blaze. I need something relatively quick growing as the area needs to be shaded. Your recommendations?

If you want a fast growing maple with top performing fall color, go with October Glory or one of the RED maples.
Autumn Blaze is not RED maple, it is a hybrid between SILVER and RED and it's really not a very good tree IMO aside from the fall color. It also doesn't grow very quickly at all. Medium growth rthey at best.
