Silver Maple Tree Description

Silver Maple Tree 

The silver maple tree is a native tree to Iowa, and it is one of the fastest-growing trees all across the world. This tree is also known as silver maple Acer saccharinum and is renowned for its rapid growth. The tree can grow 4-6 feet in height each year. The leaves of this 80 feet tall tree consist of five lobes, all embedded deep. The color of the leaves is bright green on top, while the lower surface is white, almost silvery in color. This glossy touch appears to be quite exhilarating for the eyes.

The pale yellow under-surface of the leaves shines. Thus, whenever there is a gentle breeze, one can notice this gleaming silvery-white appearance from far. However, the winter twigs appear much more slender, and they give off a beautiful red-brown or dull red color that balances off the shimmering appearance of these fast-growing trees.

The crown of these trees is rounded or oval. The buds of the trees are dark reddish-purple to bright red. The flower buds often occur as visible clumps.

In the early spring, you'll notice the tiny flowers on these shade trees, usually red

The flowers mature entirely in the late spring or at the start of the summer. When the tree is young, it has a soft light-gray bark. But, the bark attains a dark ashy color when it gets older. This bark looks smoother when it's a seedling and eventually changes its texture, becoming sturdier and more robust. The exotic fall color of the leaves of these trees captures the most attention. This color ranges from green-yellow brown to yellow to brown.

The fast-growing trees perform best in well-drained soils. The shade trees are a common component of the bottomland forests, and they are mostly found on floodplains and stream banks. Generally, the tree grows in moist locations, but it can also tolerate dry and sandy soil conditions. They have also exhibited drought tolerance. This plant will flourish and fill the landscape with its exotic fall foliage.

The trees require little to no maintenance. They need pruning every couple of years, and that's pretty much it. However, you need to keep the root system of these trees moist and well-drained all the time because this is what they need to blossom fully.

Wet and acidic soil conditions will help you experience that exhilarating fall color of the leaves that you look forward to all year. These trees can fill your landscape with outlandish fall colors – red, yellow, brown – you name it. The spirit of autumn is incomplete without these trees. So, buy these shade trees at the first chance you get.
