Maples are famous for their effectiveness as shade, street, or specimen trees. It is well-known that the maples change their colour to orange-brown-yellow-red during autumn every year. A single tree may have leaves with a combination of these colours. A highly desirable characteristic of the maple tree is its drought tolerance. We can find some maples for you!

1. Red Maple Tree, Acer Rubrum

Red maple trees are relatively fast-growing and may reach 60 feet in height and be rounded or oval. These maples are full of wintry strength. They not only add beauty to any landscaping design but also aid in the purification of air and provide shade, which is so important and needed! Try envisioning the beautiful show Acer Rubrum; the Red Maple Tree can provide viewers throughout the year. 

This tree starts with its red flowers in March- April and continues until April, again in the springtime with its reddish twigs and redbuds, and last but not least, in the fall with its bright red leaves – the symbol of RED!!! Attractiveness and uses of the Red Maple tree, Acer Rubrum Rufacer, in the home landscape. 

In autumn, the green leaves in three or five leaflets turn pink, but the exact shades cannot be forecasted. Other factors that affect fall colour include variety; greens can be greenish-yellow, red, or even burgundy.


2. Silver Maple, Acer Saccharinum

The silver maple is another tree you will find almost everywhere in the U. S. because the species naturally produces very quickly. Silver maple is a fast-growing, tall native tree of eastern North America. It is usually observed in full sunlight alongside creeks and other water bodies. This species has been deemed to need to be more extensive. 

Strong winds and ice can lead to branches falling despite being healthy due to lack of and infrequent pruning. Numerous authorities advise against the idea of planting silver maples. Silver maple is not a desirable tree to plant near city streets because it has many leaves that fall in autumn, and its extensive roots can cause blockage of the sewer system.

3. Sugar Maple, Acer Saccharum

Sugar maple is a mid-western origin tree adored for its spectacular fall colour, which can vary from bright yellow to orange. It has bright green leaves and can be used as a good shade in the summer in the parks and golf courses and in the landscape around the house, where it can spread. Black maple (Acer nigrum), now considered a subspecies of sugar maple, was once thought to be a distinct species. 

It is also frequent in dry forests and woodlands but rarely in high northern hardwood forests of north acidic situations. Northern sugar maple can grow from 50- to 120 feet tall with a spreading crown that boasts heavy shade and growth that is considered slow to medium, though it could be faster in the open. They are 5 - 5 lobed with coarsely toothed margins and turn vibrant shades of red, orange, or yellow in the fall.

4.Tatarian Maple (Acer Tataricum)

Tatarian maple is a deciduous tree species with a natural distribution in southeastern Europe to western Asia. The plant looks like a multi-stemmed shrub or a small tree with a dense rounded crown that can grow up to 30 feet high. It is yellow in the fall, with its leaves turning to yellow. 

Since it is big and bright, the Tatarian maple was later turned into a decorative tree in the United States. Tatarian maples are suckering trees that can generate heavy seed. The primary dispersal method is wind transport due to the presence of winged samaras, which help with seed dispersal. The distribution is such that most of the seeds fall within a range of 100 yards of the parent tree; some of the seeds can travel long distances by wind and water.

5. Vine Leaf Maple, Acer Cissifolium

It is a smaller tree growing on average 20 to 30 feet high. Although the early development is columnar or slightly obovate, it becomes umbeliform in old age with a flattened, expanded, globe-shaped crown. It requires part of the sun in moist, fertile, well-drained soils but will take full sun in cool summer regions. 

It needs to be wet regularly for it to function optimally. In habit and proportion, this small tree appears like the Japanese maple and may be used similarly as a specimen tree. Leaves show some fall colour but could be more impressive, changing from the usual green to yellowish and reddish.
