Scarlet Red Maple Tree

This is a wonderful addition to our yard. Looks great where I planted it.

The red Maple tree is found in swamps on severe, dry soil and between. It can grow at a sea level of 3,000 ft and is used to collect syrup. It can grow from medium to large and range from 90 to 115 ft. The bark is gray when growing, and as it grows, it becomes dark and cracks.

The Red Maple Bears Fruit In Spring

Some flowers grow on them also. These flowers appear from April to May and bloom at eight years old. The fruit that it bears is a samara. They typically grow in pairs and are light brown to reddish. The Samara ripens from April to June. The foliage on it can provide shade for landscapes.

Red Maple can grow in different soil types, including granite, schist, sandstone, slate, limestone, and more. The soil must consider moisture, pH, elevation, and textures. It has been called a "super-generalist." It is called that because it was once predicted to replace the dominant species.

A Red Maple Tree Is Used For Commercial Uses 

It is also considered good firewood. If you are thinking of planting one, there are some steps to follow. First, find a wet area with sun or partial shade. The soil must be acidic to neutral. It does not need fertilization.

It is one of the most common deciduous types in eastern North America. Most varieties reach a height of 50' at maturity, and all are aptly named: their flowers, twigs, and even seeds are varying degrees of scarlet! However, it is most commonly known for its vibrant scarlet autumn foliage.

The Red Maple Stems Turn Scarlet In Winter

Its new leaves are green with bits of scarlet, turning to a magnificent scarlet (and sometimes gold!) in the fall. The green stems even turn scarlet in winter! Spectacular coloring aside, the leaves are easy to distinguish. They are deciduous and arranged oppositely on the twig. Small scarlet flowers appear in the spring and bear samara fruits from April to June (while leaves are still developing).

From a young age, it developed roots to suit its site, allowing it to prosper in many areas. While it prefers moisture in the soil (thriving in poorly drained, wet areas), it is tolerant of many soil conditions, which is one of the many reasons people love to plant it.

The Red Maple Can Grow Up To 8 Feet Per Year!!

Red Maple is a great shade tree for any home. It looks great in the summer and provides a cooling shade. This plant also looks fantastic when its colors turn beautiful red in the fall.  This plant also prefers full and partial sunlight to grow to its best. It is easy to grow and can survive summer droughts. It even grows fast at 4-5 ft. a year. This fast-growing type prefers full sun or full shade. It can live up to 200 years and grow to 8 feet yearly.
