I planted a field maple hedge 12 months ago and it’s doing really well around my home . Do i need to water these trees during there 2nd year and are they fully established yet ?

Field maple is robust and unlikely to need watering once it is established a full year. They will continue to establish and if the summer is very dry, they would benefit from watering once or twice.

It is important to keep down weeds within 50cm of the plants.
