Brilliant Fall Color in a Versatile Tree

Legacy Sugar Maple is a deciduous tree with fantastic ornamental qualities.  Plant one as a focal point for your front yard for its lovely fall color, or place one where you could use some shade on those hot summer afternoons.  Legacy Sugar Maples are also beneficial as street trees.

Your Legacy Sugar Maple has several outstanding qualities, but is most valued for its displays of blazing red/orange fall color (with additional yellows in warmer areas). 

People who have never seen the Legacy Sugar Maple in full fall color often say the experience is unforgettable. These maples can bring that same unforgettable magic to your yard!

When not putting on its colorful display, Legacy Sugar Maple produces glossy, dark green, lobed foliage that resists leaf tatter and drought. 

Furrowed, grey bark covers the stately trunk that supports a symmetrical, rounded canopy.  A beautiful tree for your yard, even when not in full color, your Legacy will amaze you with its versatility. 

Late winter/early spring also brings a bountiful harvest of sweet sap you can use for syrup or other culinary delights…a long-time favorite use of Maple trees that can be tapped or simply overlooked if you prefer.

The Legacy is fast-growing for a Sugar maple. It can reach up to 60 feet in height with a 50 foot spread to its dense, oval crown.  The leathery leaves and durable foliage resist heat and drought, and it’s among the most shade tolerant of the large deciduous trees.

This maple is easy to grow and does not require much maintenance. It’s salt-tolerant and thus performs well in some urban environments as well. 

Legacy Sugar Maple is an investment for future generations as, under ideal conditions, it can live up to 100 years. 

An amazing tree for all seasons, you won’t regret planting a Legacy in your yard today.

Slow to establish, leaf out Review by MarkV
I live in the Great Basin region at the toe of the Rocky Mountains, USDA zone 3-5. We planted our Legacy 5 years ago, and it has been fairly "dormant" until this year: last tree in our area to leaf out, one of the first to drop leaves. It is definitely not a fast grower in this location. The species was suggested by our local urban forestry department, which has great hope the species will prove to be drought tolerant in our dry region. I would suggest that you carefully consider your climate before selecting this tree, and have lots of patience.
fall color Review by Megan I
Just back from a fall tour to New England area and I cannot imagine me not buying one of the legacy sugar maples for my yard.
A generous and forgiving tree... Review by Playpretty
This is a type of tree my great-grandfather planted just about everywhere! There are trees growing to this day on farms and in yards and along small town streets. Several of them have even survived ruthless LG&G *pruning* that resulted in tree-murder to other species. This tree is grows fast, adds excellent shade and when situated properly, can help with utility bills..for when it loses its leaves in the fall, then sunlight can warm a house. And it makes a lovely sound when wind blows through it.
