    Red Maple Tree - Acer rubrum

    The Red Maple tree is one of the most abundant trees in North America with distinctive hand-shaped red maple leaves that fill its large canopy. The Red Maple is best known for its brilliant and intense fall foliage, although this well-named tree also displays something red during every season: red buds in winter, red flowers in spring, red leafstalks in summer, and bright red foliage in the fall. This tree usually has an irregular but rounded crown, but Red Maples are very variable. 

    Red Maples are fast-growing and reach anywhere from 13 inches to 24 inches per year with an average full height of 40-50 feet. The Red Maple is one of the most adaptable trees in its natural range along eastern North America, tolerating both dry and wet soils equally. This tree may be found growing in poor dry soil or swamps and from sea level up to 3,000-foot elevation. These versatile trees can grow in acidic, moist, rich, well-drained, clay, and silty loam soils and grow on a dry slope or a high spot of the lawn. 

    A Red Maple can survive drought as well as an extended period of flooding. The Red Maple can grow well in Zones 3-9. While Red Maples prefer full sun with at least 6 hours of direct, unfiltered light each day, they can grow with a bit less sun. 

    Red Maple trees are ornamental trees that may be used for their beauty in landscaping as well as their shade with a spread of up to 40 feet at maturity. Smaller cultivars may be used as an landscaping accent or a full-size tree may be used to provide shade and beauty in a front or back yard. "Red Maple" can refer to thousands of distinct cultivars, but Red Maples usually fall into four groups: true red maples, Norway maples that have red foliage, upright Japanese maple trees, and weeping cut-leaf Japanese maples.
