Red Maple tree (Acer rubrum)

Red Maple-Hardy tree, deep loped dark green leaves turning brilliantly red in autumn together with tiny clusters of red springs flowers. Makes an excellent specimen tree. As a landscape feature this is a good component of a mixed clump. It looks particularly good close to water.  It requires very little routine maintenance. Any pruning should only be carried out in late summer.  The life-span is seldom more than 150 years.  The species appears to have arrived in Britain before 1656. A plant was recorded in Tradescants Fulham nursery in that year.

Average Growth Rate eventual height 12 meters x 8 meter spread


A tree of rapid growth. Fully hardy. Sun or partial shade. Will tolerate most soil types including chalky soils. A drift of red maples along a bank would be a notable feature.
