Silver Maple Live Stakes - Acer Saccharinum
Silver Maple Lives stakes, known in the Latin as Acer Saccharinum, are known for their beauty. Silver Maples are one of the fastest growing and blooming trees, as they will grow anywhere from 3 to 7 feet per year. The Silver Maple can adapt and survive tough seasonal changes, including flooding and drought. The trees provide seed nourishment to animals and is a great nesting site for birds or squirrels.
Silver Maples can be found anywhere from Minnesota to Alabama. Since they are from the maple family, they are able to produce sap for use in syrups, although they are not normally used in this manner. These trees have a very unique leaf. The part of the leaf closest to the sun has a bright green hue. The section of the bottom of the leaf yields a white or silver color. When the leaves blow in the wind the under a portion of the leaf reveals its colors, thus displaying its name, Silver Maple.
In colder weather, the leaves have been known to change to a shade of yellow or gold, and some have even been seen to show some orange or red colors. This makes them an exceptionally beautiful tree to look at in the fall.
Silver Maples are predominantly known to have a beautiful bright-green color on the top of their leaves nearest to the sun while having a white to silver color on the bottom of each leaf. Swaying in the wind, the underside of the leaves will dazzle and glean the underlying colors, accomplishing a rather elegant display of its name, Silver Maple. Each leaf distinctly 3”-4” in size has five sections with profound clefts between each one as if in a star pattern. The Finely sketched bark is recognized mostly gray with a thin scale pattern and texture. During the colder months, their leaves will habitually turn a vibrant shade of yellow or gold, while some rarely have been seen to show orange to red in colder climates, making them a spectacular site during the fall. While being of the Maple family, Silver Maples can and will produce delicious sap for use in syrup although not as much as others of the Maple family. Silver Maples make a wonderful wildlife tree, proving both nourishment from the seeds and nesting sites for birds or squirrels. As a fast-growing tree and one of the fastest blooming trees during the spring, the Silver Maple will grow 3 to 7 feet per year. Grown native in Minnesota all the way to Alabama, Silver Maples will comfortably survive during tough seasonal shifts, floods and even drought with much ease. While supplying fascinating colors and dense leaf growth, it makes a versatile shade to an ornamental tree with every changing season.
