Maple, (Sugar)

Acer saccharum

sugar maple

If the cultural requirements can be met, this is the one of the best large shade trees available. Soft, light green flowers in the spring, rich green summer foliage in the summer and the grey, furrowed bark and winter structure would be enough to rate this tree high on the list of landscape trees. But the most notable attribute is the fall color; red, orange, yellow, sometimes all three on the same tree but almost always brilliant. Few other trees color in the autumn as brilliantly and reliably as the Sugar Maple. Needs moist, well-drained soil and a pollution-free environment.

This tree will contribute to any location where it has the room to grow. It can serve as a specimen, grouped with evergreens to enhance autumn foliage effect, outlined against the sunrise or sunset in the dormant season…
