Red Maple Tree Description

Red maple tree

Red maple trees add to the beauty of your landscape. The soft red maple tree with its red flowers becomes the grand focal point of the landscape in autumn. The deep red color plays an attractive role during other seasons as well. The green leaves during early spring enhance the ornamental beauty of these trees. The tree is a widespread deciduous shade tree in eastern and North America.

They are easy to grow dark leaves and red foliage trees. They bloom in almost all circumstances. The quiet variability of leaves' color gives the maple tree the most attractive and aesthetic look.

These trees vary in variety and appearance. They differ in appearance from small, shrubby striped maple tree species to deciduous forest trees like Sugar maple, black maple, bigleaf maple, Japanese maple, silver maple, and red maple.

Different varieties also have different habitats. They thrive on well-drained loam soils with pH levels ranging from 5.5 to 7.3. Some are better adapted to warmer, drier climates. 

Red maple trees grow in sunny and shaded locations, in dry or moist soil, and at high and low elevations

This tree's adaptable roots let it thrive in various soil conditions. These trees grow better in some environments than others despite their extraordinary roots. The healthiest maples grow in deep, damp, acidic soil. These trees' leaves are the easiest way to distinguish them from different categories.

As with other North American trees, they are deciduous and positioned oppositely on the twig. The sinuses are generally thin. However, the leaves can vary significantly. When there are five lobes, the three at the tip are more significant than the other two towards the base. Such are the leaves of the related silver maple. 

In the early stages, the upper side of the leaf is light and dark green. The maple fall foliage can turn yellow and orange in the fall too. The leaves turn into a characteristic brilliant red color in autumn. The color of the leaf can be influenced by soil acidity. Trees with female blooms are more likely to generate orange coloring, while males produce red.

When the environment is more relaxed, the tree's fall colors are most striking in the northern section of its habitat.

Maple trees are fast-growing, with an average height of 15 to 30 meters

They have maximum drought tolerance once established. You may select one that matches the other plants in the garden and enjoy the maple fruit. Little red blooms grow on red maples from March to April, and the fruit matures from April to June. Samaras are red maple fruits. Squirrels and a variety of other rodents feed on the fruits.

Red maple trees are available online at Tn Nursery.

    This gives a lively color in my farm. I had this over the years from TN nursery. And lately I did a bulk purchase. Excited to plant new ones.

    I got a stick in the mail. I assume it’ll grow in the spring. It was a very well packaged stick.

    Received the Red Maple tree in very good condition 12-3-20 and planted it the next day. Time will tell if I'm completely satisfied. The odds are I will be.
