Hi Everyone! About 6 years ago I relocated to the Andes Mountains in Colombia, a beautiful lush region ("city of eternal spring") at 2300 meters where the temperature is between 23C and 14C all-year long and there are no seasons. I have been able to grow North American trees here from seedlings, most recently chestnut trees, and am about to try my hand at growing the Sugar Maple. I am just about to get started. I would like to ask a rather mundane question. Has anyone on this forum ever had success, or know someone who has had success, planting maples here in Colombia where there are no seasons? Since we typically associated these lovely trees with the four seasons, I wonder quite simply if the tree grows and blossoms, whether it would keep its leafs all-year-round or if it would shed them. Thank you!
