The Red Maple has  regularly been seen as having distinct green to dark-green leaves during summer or warm months that are 2" to 6" in length with a soft texture on each leaf.  The leaves are sectioned into 3 or 5 with clefts that appear jagged in irregular patterns.  When looking at the bark of  the Red Maple, it appears gray in color with refined small clefts into each strand that is scale-like in both appearance and texture. The Red Maple gets it's name from the autumn months, changing the color of it's leaves from green to bright red, like a fine red wine.  In the spring you will see tiny red flowers appear from buds as well as any new stems, appearing red as well. During a good rain in the fall, the leaves appear shiny and vibrant, brightening up even the gloomiest of days. It has been known to do very well in urban environments as well as rural environments with loose structured soil. Some wildlife may choose to feed from the fruits of the Red Maple and may house themselves within the branches as well.  Given good growing conditions, it will grow 1-2 feet per year fully established up to 40'- 60' in height once fully mature.  The canopy and leaf structure will appear round to oval in shape. Most commonly it has been native to the eastern and central parts of North America, ranging from southern parts of Canada all the way to Florida with eastern parts of Texas included.  While holding a true red hue in most every season of it's growth, The Red Maple makes a truly unique and marvelous shade tree with many ornamental properties as well.
