Red Maple Live Stakes belong in a bright and sunny area, as they prefer full sunlight to partial sunlight

Red Maple Live Stakes is native to the eastern and central parts of North America and is commonly called Swamp Maple or Water Maple. These names are taken in part to its typical environment of wet locations. Planting zones are 3-9. After planting from seeds, roots should be showing within 4 to 6 weeks. It can be seen with some smaller forms of wildlife feeding on the fruit and seeds so if you are planning on saving them, keep a watchful eye during this part of its life.

Red Maple Live Stakes are found mostly in wetlands

The favorable locations for Red Maple are wetlands, lakes, ponds, and rivers and streams with stable and consistent waterways. It can adapt to many soil conditions, but its most beneficial is moist soil. Growing season is April through October in the USA. Its growth will stop in dry seasons and continue again in rainy seasons. It's hard to mistake this tree due to its lush, bright red color leaves which it can hold in almost every season of its growth. Along with the leaves are red twigs and stems. Small blooms happen in the springtime months showing off its samara flower.  At full maturity, it can reach 40-60 feet high and its trunk at 25-35 inches wide. The roots grow sturdy and help prevent soil erosion. The seeds growing on its upper branches resemble a small helicopter as it spins and glides to the ground. Thanks to the slow descend the seeds land farther away from the tree itself which could be said has contributed to the successful spread of Red Maple.
