Green Mountain Sugar Maple
Brilliant Red, Yellow, and Orange Fall Color!
The Green Mountain Sugar Maple, 'Acer saccharum 'Green Mountain', is a very handsome deciduous tree with leathery leaves!
This showy tree is upright and oval in shape. It is noted for its improved performance in dry restricted growing areas such as areas close to pavement. The Green Mountain carries all of the characteristics of the Sugar Maple with the strong limbs and the gorgeous fall color and the seeds are inconspicuous and cause no significant litter problems.
The fruit of the sugar maple, called a samara, is a double-winged, papery seed-bearing fruit, commonly called a "whirlybird" or "helicopter. These seeds can be easily dispersed in a fresh breeze!
The Green Mountain is used for wide tree lawns, screens, shade, and as specimen tree. It is also a good street tree with its leathery leaves and durable foliage resists to heat and drought.
Sugar Maple is among the most shade tolerant of large deciduous trees. Like other maples, its shade tolerance is manifested in its ability to germinate and persist under a closed canopy as an understory plant.
The main ornamental feature of the tree is the brilliant red, yellow, or orange fall color!
