Sugar Maple Tree (Acer Saccharum)

Sugar Maple Tree Acer Saccharum is grown in Britain more as a talking point than for its ornamental merit.  Superficially this tree resembles Norway maple but it is usually more upright. It comes from a huge area in North America from sub tropical Guatemala and Mexico to Canada. It is commercially important as a source of maple syrupmaple sugar, and hardwood lumber useful in furniture manufacture and flooring. In America the foliage colour is also quite spectacular, but most British trees tend to depend on our summers.  If the Sugar Maple Acer Saccharum gets a good summer and plenty of sunshine then it will  display in autumn a good colouring of red, purples and yellows.  Maples should be planted at least 7 meters away from any building. The rooting is shallow with many branching roots. Though the sugar maple thrives in many soils, a wet soil is unsuitable for a healthy growth. The tree is not tolerant to stagnating water. Sensitive to salt for icy roads. Intolerant to hard surfaces. Bare root stock available Oct-April or PRE ORDER NOW and reserve For more MAPLE trees click here
