When to unwrap japanese maple?

Postby newlife » Apr 17, 2008 1:15 pm

When can I safely unwrap my japanese maple? I live in Ottawa and we are currently experiencing very warm weather. +21 today. Our last frost is usually mid May (I think). Do I leave it wrapped until the last frost? Is it going to harm it be be wrapped on the warm days?
Thanks for the help.

Your maple should be fine. Spring cold is not going to hurt it.
Unwrap now.
