Maple Trees: Acer
Maple Trees: There are 128 species of Maple in the Acer genus, including the sugar maple (Acer saccharum), the Red Maple (Acer rubrum), and silver maple (Acer saccharinum). Maples are appropriate for USDA hardiness zones 3 through 9, except for the sugar maple, which is rated for zones 3 through 8. Some species reach heights of as much as 100 feet, while smaller varieties average 10 feet tall. Maples bloom in early spring or late winter, and they generally tolerate sun and partial shade.
These stately trees have thick green leaves in the summer as well as brilliant fall foliage and are treasured as landscaping trees, particularly the red Maple. Sugar maples produce a sap that can be boiled into delicious sweet maple syrup or processed into maple sugar. A single mature sugar maple tree can produce enough fluid to make up to 2 gallons of syrup per year. Maples release their seeds in pods called samaras, which have a distinctive look that is sometimes compared to a helicopter.
Maple trees are smooth-barked when they're young, and some cultivars, such as the Acer griseum, have particularly decorative barks that add depth and texture to a landscape
