The Red Maple Tree is a species of deciduous tree that is native to the eastern United States. It is one of the most abundant trees and North America and is commonly used in neighborhood and backyard landscaping. Red Maples are a medium-sized tree that produces green leaves that turn bright red in the fall season. You can expect this tree to grow to be roughly 90 to 120 feet tall. One of the top advantages of growing a Red Maple Tree is that it is quite resilient and adaptive to various climates. Red Maples can be found in swaps, dry soil, and pretty much any environment in between.
Once you have planted a Red Maple Tree within your landscape setting, there is little additional care needed on your part. You can water the tree occasionally, but it is not necessary. These trees are known for their resilience and will easily adapt you your yard. If you live in an area with strong winds, you may consider using a post to support your tree until it is fully grown. Red Maples are a striking shade of scarlet in the fall and are among the simplest trees to take care of.
Red Maple Trees
Red Maple trees, or swamp maple, are the most common trees found on the eastern side of North America. The Red Maple can be seen growing from the eastern border of the United States to as far west as Eastern Texas and thrives all the way from Florida to the Canadian border. It is even the state tree of Rhode Island.
Once full-grown, it can reach 70 feet or more in height and turns a brilliant red color in the autumn. It also has delicate red flower buds in the spring, and new leaves often have a hint of red visible as well, earning the tree its name across multiple seasons. This tree flourishes in hardiness zones 3-9 and can grow quickly from year to year, with up to two feet in growth each year.
This tree is particularly hardy and is tolerant of many soil types and climates, which is not surprising given the vast numbers found in North America. However, it does ideally enjoy having full sunlight and moist soil. While it spreads quickly in new wood forests, more shade-loving trees tend to keep the numbers of Red Maple in check-in older forests. Rabbits, squirrels, and deer all can gain nourishment from this versatile tree, but it can be poisonous to horses, so it is better to keep it away from horse pastures.

Dormancy notice: This plant, like many others, enters dormancy or semi-dormancy in the late fall through early spring. *THIS PLANT IS NOT DEAD. It is completely healthy but upon receiving the plant, you may notice it exhibits fewer leaves, discoloration, or complete leaf drop. This is normal and essential to the plant's health. In fact, planting during dormancy promotes root growth, giving your plant a better start for spring, when new foliage will begin to grow. Photos are for reference only and are of mature trees.
