Typically reaching maximum heights of between 60 feet and 80 feet tall, the Sugar Maple tree is found in the forests of New England and noted for its considerable longevity. While the leaves of the tree maintain a solid green color throughout the Summer, the foliage turns bright-yellow and dark-orange during the Fall.
Growth is best achieved in USDA Growing Zones 3 – 8, and the ideal soil for the Sugar Maple Tree is low-to-medium moisture with frequent drainage in the area.
