No one can overlook the regal Maple (genus Acer) with its dozens of species. Some grow quite tall; while others stay small and compact.
We're proud to offer the most popular species of beautiful Maples for sale in the United States.This includes the Sugar Maple trees, Red Maple tree, Silver Maple, Japanese Maple, and the Black Maples.
Many types of Maple trees are native to North America and are valued for their shade, wood, sap, and ornamental landscape qualities.
One of their most enduring features is the fall foliage, which turns such beautiful fall colors. Bronze, oranges, yellows and reds and purples burst out in the fall creating wonderful landscape views.
Part of the famous fall beauty of the New England states can certainly be attributed to the majestic breeds of Maple trees. They tap the trees for delicious Maple syrup, and you can too!

For a perfectly petite shade tree, the compact Brandywine Maple punches well above its weight without growing too tall or wide. You'll get a lot of compliments on the stunning fall colors from orange to red and burgundy.
We sell the species Red Maple, and also offer many modern cultivars of this strong, outstanding tree. Red Maple roots are well-suited for lawn and street planting, especially if you mulch underneath as a garden feature.
Maples have those instantly recognizable leaves that turn brilliant red once the temperatures drop. But Red Maples look good all year-long, with red flowers and plenty of shelter for songbirds.
You'll get a great balance of strength and speed with this choice. Without a doubt, the fast-growing Silver Maple gets quite large and needs room to spread to appreciate its glistening leaves in their full glory.
Durable Red Maples grow at a medium rate of speed. We highly recommend Nature Hills Root Booster during planting...as that will support the feeder roots in their quest for micronutrients from the soil.
Trust us, root health is important if you want a healthy, speedy shade tree! Give it the right planting site to meet its needs, from sun to soil and supply a consistent amount of water.
With proper care, it can grow one to two feet a year. You can also have shade faster by buying the largest container size we have in stock. A bigger number means an older tree that makes an immediate impact in your landscape.
Fast-growing Silver Maples can reach 25 years in 10 years. It may take other selections 15 years to reach 25 feet tall.
No wonder trees are so precious! You'll feel great about your choice to include a Maple on your property...and they look amazing even when young.
The distinctive samara fruit of common Maple is very recognizable. The seeds are winged and you might nickname them "whirlybirds" named for the way they float to the ground.
Today, many cultivars are male trees, so they are seedless. This means less mess and less maintenance for you...although you'll miss out on some epic "flipping the helicopters" contests!
We also sell Maple shrubs, like Flame Amur Maple. Keep these as a tree-form as a specimen, or grow several of them out as a large-scale privacy hedge with fragrant white flowers.
Plant a Maple bush hedge 8 to 10 feet apart on center. Measure from the center of one to the center of the next.
Many smaller trees, such as the breathtaking Japanese Maple, are popular as specimen trees in partial shade. Check out our extensive collection here.
Be sure to study the Plant Highlights and pick a spot that works for your trees. You'll need to know your USDA Hardiness Zone; type in your zip code in our Zone Finder above the Highlights.
Our extensive collection will grow in a wide range from Zones 3 through 10. Select the right tree for your Zone.
Dig a hole only as deep as the root system, but twice as wide. Don't plant your new tree too deep!
The best time to plant a Maple tree is anytime the ground isn't frozen.
Pay close attention to watering if you plant in summer. Maples like a three-inch layer of mulch over their roots to keep them cool...but keep it pulled away from directly touching the stem.
It's possible to plant under Maple trees, especially if you install the underplanting at the same time you plant your tree. Use groundcovers or small partial shade perennials and shrubs like Little Henry® Virginia Sweetspire for great results.
As your tree gets older, shape it with strategic pruning cuts. The goal is to encourage a well-balanced canopy.
Trees need good air circulation and sunlight penetration into the canopy. Prune Maples after they leaf out to avoid dripping sap.
Most Maple trees are easy to grow in full sun or partial shade. They are certainly easy to love.
