Sugar Maple Tree 

Sugar Maple Tree: Acer leucoderme, a subspecies of the silver maple tree, is best known as the sugar maple. It is a deciduous American native tree found in many USDA growing zones.

Gardeners and landscapers include this tree in the landscape thanks to its stately size and shape, generous canopy, and sweet sap (maple syrup). The species grows well in full sunshine with adequate watering or partial shade.

The sugar maple tree is a durable, easy-care species. It is drought-tolerant, cold-tolerant, heat-tolerant, insect-resistant, disease-resistant, and compaction-tolerant. It can even tolerate high-moisture content clay soils if it drains well.

The Sugar Maple Tree Is a Good-natured Species

In its native forests, the sugar maple tree grows near swamps, riverbeds, and on fertile floodplains. It loves a well-drained spot in your yard, but it will survive short droughts, quickly perking up after a restorative rainfall.

The sugar maple requires plenty of woody organic materials. When you plant your tree, add wood mulch, peat moss, or another nitrogen-rich compost or fertilizer when you plant it. Follow up by adding these materials twice annually.

Besides these needs, your sugar maple tree will need very little from you, especially after the roots strengthen.

The Sugar Maple Tree Provides Plenty of Shade

The sugar maple tree may reach a mature height of approximately eighty feet. It will develop a pleasantly rounded, dense crown about forty feet wide, providing ample shade.

Sugar maple tree leaves are about three inches long, opposing, and lobed. They present in a glossy green during spring and summer and put on a show of orange and russet during the fall.

The bark of a sugar maple tree is a nutty, rich brown but sometimes with a creamy-white chalkiness on its upper trunk.
