Scarlet Red Maple Tree is a very fast growing tree, growing at a rate of 3 feet or more per year
It is drought resistant, fast growing and requires petite care. It is also resistant to most disease and pests. In spring and summer, the foliage is a beautiful green, and it is ideal for shade.

Scarlet Red Maple Tree makes for an ornamental tree or shrub
A mature Scarlet Red Maple Tree, commonly found in zones 3-9, grows to a height of 30-50 feet, a spread of 25-35 feet and is located in soil conditions ranging from arid to moist, but not alkaline. While this maple is one of the most widespread deciduous trees in America, an autumn walk, especially in New England, is going to reveal an encounter with a sea of colors - the Scarlet Red Maple undoubtedly being among them. While true to its name, this tree is known as much for its scarlet display as for its softer, deeper reds. All parts of this peacock show off varying hues of red, except for the trunk, which is a light gray that darkens with maturity.
Scarlet Red Maple Tree makes a lovely shade tree
However it should be noted that the roots can grow far, deep and wide, so proximity to sidewalks and driveways should be avoided. Power lines may also create a conflict with the height of the tree. That being said, in the wild, it is often found accenting the curves of a country road. Since it tends to mesh well into the landscape, surrounding it with trees of varying densities tends to harmonize the look and feel of the arrangement.
As Scarlet Red Maple Tree grows at a medium rate, Scarlet Red will usually live to 90 but may see the age of 150, which by most standards is considered a short to medium-lived age for a tree. It has a high canopy that usually begins at or above 6 feet from the ground when mature. The leaves distinguish themselves from other varieties of this maple as they are typically 5-10cm long and full with a serrated margin, and are toxic to horses. The seeds are abundant, colloquially known as “helicopter seeds” because of the way they flutter to the ground. They ripen between April and the beginning of June, even before the leaf has reached maturity. While the Scarlet Red Maple is somewhat adaptable to environmental pollution, it will thrive in the country and tolerate an urban landscape.
