Red Maple Tree - Acer rubrum

This showy, deciduous tree grows small red flowers in the spring. The flowers will give way to a red-winged, dangling fruit. The bright red leaves will turn shades of bright red and yellow in the fall. The leaves are 2”-5” long with 3-5 lobes. Branches that have a narrow-angle from the tree trunk tend to be weaker and break easier. It will start with a pyramid shape when it’s young, that will grow more rounded as it ages. The Red Maple tree should be planted in full sun in moist soil with a low pH in zones 3-9. This fast-growing tree will reach a height of up to 50 feet and can live between 50 and 150 years. It will gain between 2’-3’ of new growth per year.

This beautiful tree will have a pyramid shape in its youth but will become more rounded as it ages. 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.

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, fertile, well-drained, clay, and silt loam soils and grow on a dry slope or a high spot of the lawn.
