Sugar Maple

Acer saccharum

The Sugar Maple exhibits dark green leaves that turn burnt orange, yellow and red in fall.  This brilliant display will make you stop and take notice every autumn.  The bark forms an attractive gray color that stands out in winter.  This large shade tree is most likely where your maple syrup comes from, it's the most common one used for tapping.  The firewood that the Sugar Maple tree produces is coveted due to its ease of splitting, heat value and resulting ash which can be used to enrich gardens.

Product questions

The Sugar Maple is a large and beautiful tree that is sure to delight.  The dark green leaves on this maple tree turn a brilliant red to orange color in autum, one of the best fall color displays of any tree around.  This tree should be planted away from roads where its roots can be compacted or the tree could be exposed to road salt.  The shallow roots of the Sugar Maple should be left to grow in an area that will not be subject to soil compaction.  Driving over the roots, even with a havy garden tractor can cause damage to the tree.  

The Sugar Maple will grow in most soils but will flourish with deep, rich soils that are routinely moist but well drained.

Fun Facts:  The NBA uses maple to make the floors that are used in professional basketball.  The Sugar Maple is the state tree of New York, Vermont, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
