Fast-Growing Maple Tree with Red Feature  

The Red Maple is a fast-growing deciduous tree with ornamental features.  It would make a terrific specimen tree for your front yard.  

The outstanding feature of the Red Maple can be found in its name.  Acer “rubrum” refers to the color red, and red is certainly this tree’s defining feature.

When fall arrives, your Red Maple will be one of the first to color, quickly cloaking itself in more of the vibrant red shades that give it its name.  

The Red Maple grows to 70 feet in height with a 50 foot spread.  You’ll love its rounded oval crown and the elegant symmetry it brings to your yard. 

The six inch leaves are the traditional maple leaf shape with a verdant sheen on top and slightly paler underside. 

You won’t have to fuss with the Red Maple as it’s tolerant of most soils and cold hardy.   

An added benefit of the Red Maple is that the sap can be used to make syrup, although it’s not generally valued as highly as the Sugar Maple for that purpose.  

For a carefree and lovely landscape tree, look no further than the Red Maple.
