A native hardwood tree. Not considered a very fast grower but this tree can live for a very long time and it’s very strong. It can have beautiful red fall colors and can become a large shade tree.
Red maples are native to much of the USA and are known to be quick growers and well known for the beautiful red fall colors. There are many different versions of the red maple but this is the original native red maple grown from seed. They are beautiful trees but are considered a softwood maple and can have weaker branches and surface roots when they get older.
