Sugar Maple may not be as sweet as your favorite dessert but it will add some sweet and colorful appeal to your landscape. Acer saccharum, or more commonly known as the Sugar Maple, is a deciduous tree that is moderate growing, hardy, and known for its brilliant and beautiful fall colors. This tree can grow to heights of up to 100 feet in ideal growing conditions with a spread of up to 50 feet. It has a hardy zone rating of 3 - 8 making it ideal for most climates, but in order to thrive at its best, the Sugar Maple should not be planted in extremely hot and dry climates. The leaves of this tree are dark green in color with five lobes which are unique to the Sugar Maple. In spring, the tree produces small green flowers that hang in groups along slender stems. When planted in groups, this tree makes an incredible eye-catching display. The Sugar Maple grows straight and statuesque with a large rounded crown of leaves that provides lots of shade creating a great spot for a picnic or just relaxing outdoors. This tree grows best in full sunlight but will also grow in partial sun. It should receive at least four hours of direct sunlight each day for optimum growth and be planted in soil that is moist, well-drained, and acidic to slightly alkaline. However, the Sugar Maple can also grow in soil that is rocky and poorer in quality. This tree also has good drought resistance. Another appealing fact about the Sugar Maple is the sap. The sap of this tree is of higher quality than other maple trees and can be boiled down to create a sweet and delicious maple syrup. Sugar Maples can be planted along curbsides or in rows for astonishing landscaping displays or near windows to provide shade or use as a windscreen. These unique and beautiful trees can be shipped just about anywhere in the U.S. and make an excellent addition to any landscape.
