Maple Trees

Maple Trees- great for sap collection (MAPLE SYRUP!), summer shade and fall color.

Silver Maple – fast growing but soft wood and many seeds

Sugar Maple- soil sensitive but the best fall color

Red Maple- nice hardwood but slower growing

Norway Maple- great dense shade

There are many cross breeds available (think Autumn Blaze). Check with a landscape or tree professional to pick the right variety for your yard.

Maple Syrup time- early March
