Does your yard lack color? Are you looking for that special tree that really makes your yard "pop" with the Legacy Sugar Maple you can do just that. What is this tree you may ask?
Sugar maple is a deciduous, Missouri native tree which will typically grow 40' to 80' tall and in some areas can get up to 100 feet. This tree is known for its dense, rounded crown. This tree is the main component of the Eastern U.S. hardwood forest and is one of the trees which are most responsible for giving New England its reputation for spectacular fall color. In the Southeast people flock to the mountains in the autumn just to see all the marvels of fall colors and many of the trees that they are looking at are these kinds of trees.
Medium green leaves (3-6" wide with 3-5 lobes) turn yellow-orange in autumn, sometimes with considerable color variations. These trees are long-lived trees which grow relatively slowly (somewhat faster in the first 35 years). Native Americans taught the early colonists how to tap these trees to make maple syrup which has now become a multi-billion dollar industry in the U.S. and Canada. The Sugar Maple also makes an excellent shade tree.
Many people have these trees and use them just as shade, most yards that you see a Maple growing in is not tapping it for syrup they have it because of the shade and little maintenance that it requires to keep it growing.
You will often find this tree growing along busy sidewalks and towns because it is tolerant to road salt, dirty soil and etc. This tree can be found at many tree nurseries but can also be found online.
