Silver Maple

Posted In: ,
A young Silver Maple, fully leaved in a summer setting, on a grassy knoll

The silver maple is very similar to the red maple. The difference is that its leaves turn yellow or brown, not red, in autumn. Sometimes, the trunks are hollow which creates space for wildlife to live in.

Caring for Silver Maple

Plant at least 10 feet from sidewalks, driveways and foundation as the roots spread abundantly. Fast-growing tree. Flowers early in Spring. Prune branches to prevent ice damage. Not tolerant of high pH or soil compaction Moderate to high pollution tolerance.
