Red Maple

Everywhere you look lately, there is a beautiful red maple in full fall color!  You can’t help but love this tree, and that is why it is so widely planted.  The U.S. Forest service recognizes it as the most common variety of tree in America.

Red maple does best in an acidic to neutral soil and will grow in full shade to full sun, and will grow in dry to submerged soils.

Enjoy the beautiful color while it lasts! Winter will be here before you know it!
