Sugar Maple Tree
Sugar Maple Tree
|Excellent yard shade tree that gets medium to large size. This tree is often overlooked or forgotten 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, the very well-known tree where maple syrup comes from! The Sugar Maple is a landscape standout. Medium to dark-green leaves turns yellow, burnt orange, or red in fall.

The large beautiful maple leaves will help keep you cool in the heat with lots of shade, and will put on a jaw-dropping show in the fall with many colors! The sugar maple has also been known by the nicknames "rock maple" and "hard maple"

Sugar maples aren’t fast growers but we love them because the fall colors are the best fall colors of any tree. I have ever seen and they are very long lived and strong trees. They are one of the only hardwood maple trees! Good tree choice if you can be patient enough
Thank you very much!
Sugar maple is a tree you rarely hear about anymore and it seems like not very many nursery’s offer sugar maples anymore especially local ones or big box stores. It’s really sad because they are native, strong and long lived. They also have the most beautiful fall colors I have ever seen in my life. They get yellow and red and orange all on same tree! So happy to of found you guys. My sugar maple I got from weaver family farms nursery is very healthy
Thank you! We appreciate you very much!
