Sometimes called Scarlet Maple, Shoepeg Maple, and even Swamp Maple, this species is native to the low, wet areas of eastern North America. Red Maple (Acer rubrum) is an abundant, adaptable species, widely planted as a shade tree. Red twigs, branchlets, and buds give Red Maple its name, as does the brilliant scarlet color of the tree’s fall foliage. Leaves have 3 to 5 lobes and are 2 to 4 inches across, shiny on top and pale below.
A moderately fast grower, usually 60 to 100 feet tall (though specimens up to 180 feet-tall exist), Red Maple boasts a large, spreading canopy and showy flowers, and is often among the first trees to color-up in fall, especially in frosty areas. This is a beautiful, seasonally entertaining tree that is highly soil-tolerant and capable of thriving in many different settings.
