Red maple trees, Silver maples and Sugar maples are very fast growing landscape trees that are well adapted for growing in wet and dry soils, flourishing as excellent shade trees and select street trees in urban landscapes and home sites. These trees are important trees for brilliantly colored leaves that can be seen during the fall as the temperatures drop. Several other maple trees listed on our site show exotic colored leaves, the Bloodgood maple maintaining red leaves during the growing season.

Red Maple trees are the most popular shade tree native to the United States, mainly because of the adaptability to almost every States climate and soil profile type. Even though the red maples grow well in wet areas, the trees are drought resistant in dry soils. Perhaps, the most important feature of the red maple tree is its fantastic transition of color after the first frost in the fall: a spectacular red color change that extends leaf dropping for weeks attracting many leaf search excursions.
