Silver Maple Tree — Acer saccharinum

Silver Maple Tree - Acer saccharinum
The Silver Maple is an impressive, stately tree that is fast-growing and native to eastern and central North America. Its leaves deliver a unique silver shimmer from their undersides, and the bark is another striking feature that also shows off a smooth and silvery effect when the tree is young. For those who love adding beautiful plants to their landscape properties and don't like waiting for years for them to develop, the Silver Maple is an attractive investment. It rapidly shoots up with an extensive root-spreading network and quickly provides a welcome leafy canopy of shade. It's not unusual for the tree to gain about two feet per year.

The Silver Maple is so excellent at reaching for the sky that the tree can attain a height of 50 to 80 feet and a spread of 35 to 50 feet at maturity. According to nursery experts, the Silver Maple thrives when planted in USDA hardiness zones of 3 to 9. This type of tree can withstand both some drought and flooding occurrences, but it does well in deep soil that is acidic and moist. The Silver Maple grows best with four hours of direct and unfiltered sunlight. Like all shade trees, the Silver Maple adds attractive beauty to one's property.

Silver maple is beloved for the silvery undersides of its leaves that ripple and gleam when the wind blows, and the silver hues of its bark when it’s young. Even the flowers are silver. But what gardeners love about this tree is that it grows incredibly fast. Besides its beauty and rapid growth, the silver maple is excellent as a shade tree and is often found in parks, gardens and along sidewalks for that purpose. It has an extensive root system and should be planted in an area where its roots can spread out without interfering with septic tanks, underground plumbing or utility lines. It prefers deep, fertile, moist soil with an acid pH. A healthy tree, the silver maple can stand some flooding and some drought.
