Maple Trees

Maple Trees
 
Maple trees are a popular choice for adding curb appeal to a front yard or shade to a back yard. These beautiful trees, which are perhaps more closely associated with fall foliage than any other tree in North America, come in many varieties, whether you have a large lawn or want a smaller tree for your landscaping. Maple trees are also among the most popular landscaping shade trees as some cultivars grow at a rate of three feet or more per year! 

One of the best-known types of maple trees are red maple trees, with stunning fall foliage that may be red, yellow, and green all at once. Red maple trees grow best in zones 4-9 and tolerate full sun to partial shade, but this type of maple tree is usually best for yards with plenty of space to grow. Don't have all that much space to spare? While red maple trees can grow quite large, some cultivars top out at just 20 feet, the perfect medium-sized tree to add interest and shade to your lawn. 

Another popular type of maple tree is the sugar maple, which can reach up to 80 feet in height with wonderful foliage that turns yellow to orange and red in fall. Famous for being the source of maple syrup, sugar maples are a great addition to any yard because they can tolerate huge ranges of temperatures and they aren't picky about soil conditions. As an added bonus, you can tap the sap and make your own maple syrup as the tree grows! 

The Japanese maple is another popular landscaping tree. A single specimen can create make breathtaking and elegant statement or the tree can be used as an accent in the border to draw the eye to its beautiful canopy of color and lacy, rich leaves. Japanese maples come in a range of sizes, from small bonzai or potted varieties to up to 30 feet tall if you want a more upright style.
