Silver Maple Seedlings will make excellent shade trees for you to enjoy
The aptly named silver maple is beloved for the silvery undersides of its leaves that ripple and gleam when the wind blows, and the silver hues of its bark when it’s young. Even the flowers are silver. But what gardeners love about this tree is that it grows incredibly fast. The silver maple, which can grow to 50 to 80 feet with a 35 to 50-foot spread when it's full grown, grows over two feet per year.
Besides its beauty and rapid growth, the silver maple is excellent as a shade tree and is often found in parks, gardens and along sidewalks for that purpose. It has an extensive root system and should be planted in an area where its roots can spread out without interfering with septic tanks, underground plumbing or utility lines. It prefers deep, fertile, moist soil with an acid pH.
