Excellent yard shade tree that gets medium to large size. This tree is often overlooked or forgot about, but once you see how beautiful these trees are in the fall and how strong of wood these trees are compared to other maples, you will see why this native to the US tree (that grows in nearly every area of the US) is so popular for those that know about it. It is a long lived tree! Also very well known tree where maple syrup comes from! The Sugar Maple is a landscape standout. Medium to dark-green leaves turn yellow, burnt orange or red in fall. Tolerates shade, likes a well-drained, moderately moist, fertile soil. Do not plant in confined areas or where salt is a problem. You will not regret growing a sugar maple tree in your landscape!
