The Acer saccharum, also known as the Northern Sugar Maple or Sugar Maple, is a stunning deciduous tree that can grow up to 120 ft tall. This species of maple is native to northeastern North America, from Nova Scotia to Texas. Its leaves are deciduous, often turning spectacular shades of yellow, orange, and red in the fall. Its flowers bloom from April to May, and the seeds ripen from October to December. The Sugar Maple prefers moist soil and can tolerate atmospheric pollution. It can grow in sandy, loamy, and heavy clay soils, as well as acidic, neutral, and alkaline soils. It is hardy to zone 3 and can grow in semi-shade to no shade. In addition to its stunning appearance, Sugar Maple is ideal for fuelwood, lumber, and veneer production. It is also palatable to humans and certain animals. Sugar maple, of course, gets its name for having a higher sugar content in its sap, which is boiled down to make maple syrup.
