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.

Very impressive. Review by Roger
Received my order in five days. It was a single stick with bare root just as described when I ordered them. I planted them the next day following the directions provided, in less than one week I had several six inch branches and leaves the size of my hand. I am very impressed and I cannot wait to see what it will be in a few years. So do not be discouraged when you receive the product.
Outstanding Choice Review by Paul
I had my red maple for 7 years. It's almost 30' tall.. A well behaved low maintenance tree with many outstanding features. Minimal ground roots, Flaming red, orange and yellow leaves in fall. Reddish twigs in winter, red flowers in spring. The upright branching habit provides good ground clearance. Place your picnic table underneath its cool refreshing shade in summer. Stands up to storms.
Surprised Review by LD
I've never bought bare root before & have to admit I was pretty surprised when they arrived. I got 3 & they were in the same box. They were tall, over 7 feet, but not much to them. I know others swear by bare root so we'll see what happens. I kind of expected more to the trees.
Fast Review by KCQ
I remember when I first purchased the tree, it came (dormant) with no leaves and had thin branches. It hasn't been a year yet and it's grown 6+" in height and has big leaves all over it and we live in a 9 zone! I can't wait to see what it looks like in a few years :)
Fast growing Review by Red Eye in IA
I bought my first bareroot tree 11 years ago for my front yard. I still find it hard to believe that that little, scrawny plant is a very nice looking tree already. I really like the branch intervals, very nicely shaped.
