Sugar Maple

  • Acer saccharum


    1-3 years old and 12-18 inches tall.


    Not only used for syrup production, but also considered a shade tree and an ornamental due to its vibrant fall colors.  At maturity it can reach heights of 60-75 feet with a spread of 40-50 feet. 

    This tree prefers full sun and partial shade in deep well-drained soils ranging from acidic to slightly alkaline.

    Commonly browsed by white-tailed deer, moose, and snowshoe hair.  Squirrels feed on the seeds, buds, twigs, and leaves.
