A great native tree, the American Red Maple is a large specimen tree suitable for planting as a shade tree in most parts of America and in most soil conditions. It is hardy, reliable and largely pest and disease free. It will grow around three feet a year, so rapidly turns from a young tree into a mature tree in a short time. It is tolerant of urban conditions so it is a good choice for a town or suburban garden.

• Great in urban conditions
• Native tree to support local wildlife
• Spectacular fall colors – one of the very best
• Tough and adaptable to many soils and drought-resistant too
• Rapid growing but long-lived and strong

This tree makes a perfect shade-tree with a spreading crown and attractive foliage. The wonderful rich-red leaves in fall make it the ideal choice for that special shade tree for your garden or as a beautiful screen or wind-break on a larger property.
